Collaborating for REAL Student Improvements!

As you visit/join this Distance Collaborations Group, you may want to give a few stats about yourself and your education position to let new/old group members know how they can collaborate with you.

Additionally, here's a terrific project where high school and college students can collaborate locally AND globally. There are infinite possibilities out there!

You can change the languages and they can compare weather terms in several different tongues.

That looks really cool. I think my students will get a kick out of seeing the weather in another language. I will use it for sure. Thanks!!

Take a look at this site: http://www.yr.no
It gives weather throughout the world. Seems like you can incorporate it into the project.

I posted during the summer about a weather project that I have oragnized, but now everything is up and we are looking for more classes to join us. It is geared to second grade, but anyone is welcome. It is all on a goggle doc spreadsheet. We are recording the high temperature, low temperature, and weather conditions daily. Each location will have a tab in the spreadsheet. If you are interested in joining us, please email me pattylangley@johnston.k12.nc.us . You can check out our spreadsheet at johnston.k12.nc.us/pattylangley under the Weather Project link in the left.

Dear colleagues and friends,

I was just wondering if you had some questionnaire/checklist to obtain data on foreign language teachers' perceptions on the use of Web2.0 tools. I would like to collect data on this topic. The results will be shared here, of course.

Many thanks for your assistance and cooperation in advance.

I think your students will enjoy MEET ME AT THE CORNER, VIrtual FIeld Trips for Kids

Along with the original content created by the professional staff, the site is open to kid- produced content.The current video was submitted by 11 year old Sam. He interviews an animal behaviorist at the Denver Zoo. It is obvious that the episode was written and filmed by Sam but the MMATC staff did a great job of editing and adding photos and links to take the episode to a new level

MEET ME AT THE CORNER, Virtual Field Trips for Kids (www.meetmeatthecorner.org) is a series of educational video podcasts for kids ages 6-12. New episodes are uploaded every two weeks, with a Learning Corner of questions and extended activities, a list of recommended books and links to fun websites about each topic.

This is a great website for kids, parents and teachers.

I'm looking for a third grade class to skype with from Alaska as we read the story of Balto. We are in Honolulu so time zones wouldn't be a problem. We can share what it's like to live in a tropical area.
