It's A Wrap – Online Project Possibilities

OH! The possibilities! Last night it was our extreme pleasure to have Macsmom Alcott (Jennifer Wagner, RL) present at the DEN in SL. Macsmom covered so much territory let me try to hit the points that I took away from the presentation and conversation.

  • Be a joiner.
  • Projects can take as little time or as much as you are willing to give. Start small and work your way up.
  • Online projects are available in every shape and size. Meaning that there are projects that you can participate in for every grade level and every subject.
  • Make your own by talking to other educators at conferences, on discussion boards, chat rooms and even in Second Life. Setting up an online project with someone else is as easy as saying “Let’s compare pets between our two classrooms” to another teacher.
