I see that you had your students donate materials to Govinda Panthy's school. Mine too! I also have put together a Facebook group for him to try to raise money to build a library for him. If you're interested, here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#/group.php?gid=75724299547
With your interest in Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.
I suggest that they add their own photos and I like your idea of adding a box in the template for students' drawings...
Looking forward to begin this project...I am sure my students will be so excited.
I'm so pleased that you replied. My students don't have emails, ... so what about having the students introduce themselves first to each other. We can choose a certain template where they can add their photos and their favorite things. Then they write messages to each other. After that we can share a project together...maybe about " A Day At School". I don't know this is what is in mind now....What do you think?
