If you are an early elementary teacher or a special educator and want to begin exploring the web 2.0 opportunities with your students, I encourage you to chat with your upper elementary teachers or even high school clubs to become tech buddies. After this short partnership, I am positive this will be a more regular part of our classroom routines for next year!
Post from my classroom blog:
We have completed our animal projects with the help of some 5th grade tech buddies. The students chose the pictures and placements of the objects. The 5th grade tech buddies helped with some of the accessibility issues, spelling words, and navigating the school's "common drive" to obtain the pictures. It has been a great, collaborative project. I look forward to doing more of these projects next year! We will continue to talk about animals (food, habitat, environment) as we wrap up this school year.
We hope you enjoy our projects! If you have a second or 2, I know the students would love to receive comments! Thanks in advance!
