I am writing curriculum for our new text (Deutsch Aktuell) and use the SmartBoard daily in the classroom. I would be interested in finding anyone interested in directly sharing resources, writing chapter lessons or brainstorming SmartBoard activities. I primarily teach German 2 and 3, and use the DA1 and DA2 texts.
The project is about creating lessons together. I will provide an opensource learning platform where teachers and students can work with.
The project is in a testfase with schools from Spain, Italy, France, Turkey and Belgium.
Next topic will be: LLT about Paris, France
Students on Twitter is a project designed to connect preK-2 classrooms around the world through Twitter. Microblogging is a great way for young classrooms to become e-pals with other classrooms.

Please join us as we embark on this new venture!
I am trying to formulate a project for my 11th & 12th grade Dynamic Earth Science students. I would like to have the students journaling about the night sky, what they can see with the naked eye, with binoculars, with a telescope (if they have one). Then compare that to the what others are seeing at different locations around the world.
Our website provider is supposed to be adding blogs and wikis to our website tools, so hopefully we can collaborate through that website.
This project is in it's development phase, so if you are interested at all please put your thoughts in and we can make something great.
I am looking to create a wiki in which people from around the world can enter data about their weather and then students can look at the data and beging to draw conclusions about what impacts weather and how weather moves around the world.
My students will be using TI probeware to collect data as part of a year-long project that concludes in the spring during out most active weather times.
I am VERY new to this and would like to start getting some feedback about the potential for this project. Any comments, suggestions and collaborators are greatly appreciated.
I am looking for this project to begin at the start of the 2009-2010 school year.
My 10th grade (15-16 years old) physics students do a weekly or bi-weekly research project to answer simple questions about how physics relates to the real world. For the 09-10 school year, I'm interested in finding middle years physical science students with questions about what they're learning. The middle years students would send their questions to my students, who would do the research and explain the results. This could be done by email between teachers or through a wiki or through podcasting. I'm open to possibilities.
Educomics http://www.educomics.org/ is an European Union Comenius education project under the Life Long Learning Programme. It will show educators how online and offline digital comics can be used in the classroom to enhance learning, engage and motivate students, and use technology in a practical and effective way.
The project will create training material for teachers and organise workshops for teachers. Attending teachers will learn how to apply strategies and lesson plans in their schools using digital comics.
You can get involved with Educomics during the course of the project, by downloading the Comiclab application that will allow you to make web comic books. The Comiclab application can be downloaded from http://www.itisart.com.gr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=66&Itemid=68&lang=en . You can use it in your school. We would be very interested in hearing about the results and how you used web comic books, please let us know at the address below.
If you would like further information please write to us.
