I spent a good chunk of my weekend putting together an online project for lower elementary. I am hoping to connect our school with some other schools in a project where early elementary students share about their family and/or cultural traditions during the December holidays. This project is designed so that it does not require a lot of classroom time to complete and does not involve very complicated technology skills. It also will introduce teachers to Smilebox – which is a neat free tool for sharing images on the web and easily allows students and parents to leave comments.
Here is the link to the wiki where there are details about the project and how to sign up:
And if you have never looked at Smilebox, here is the link to the Teacher Tool Page to get a free teacher account:
