Hi Ben, Thanks for the reply. I currently use a googledocs spreadsheet for online surveys of whole year groups and find it really useful. I was just wondering what other things people were using it for.
My colleague uses Moodle with 8th grade Language Arts students. I don't know how it would translate to 5th graders, however, never having used it myself. Good luck with your search. Beautiful panoramic pictures!
Hi Ben, i didn't know you live in Singapore :) My brother lives there and my nephew learn in an international school too... We have on our School Beyond the Walls a special group about Singapore: check out.
I checked out your world in crisis site. I hope you get a good response with it. My school has a conservation club that teaches the students about these issues as well. Here is the address if you want to check it out. http://noelconservationclub.blogspot.com/
Thanks for your response, Ben. Hopefully, the tongue-in-cheek factor comes through my post. This point is well taken: "even the most interactive and exciting field trip, for example, can be boring if the students see no purpose in it."
