ONLINE COLLABORATION PROJECTS
We have been having another great year of collaboration projects! The collaboration projects are learning activities that provide collaboration between two or more classrooms. The participating classrooms will be from various locations around the world, will use the Internet to interact with one another and will be working on a similar topic for a specific length of time. Using the Internet students and teachers will share their activities, findings and reflections. In addition to student collaboration, teachers will also be provided with the necessary tools to collaborate with one another. Registration for December Traditions is now open!
