Winter Around the World Project

This is an effort to celebrate the winter season by sharing stories, songs, poems, illustrations, and photographs from students all of ages, teachers, and schools around the world. Once they have gathered all of the winter stories in a Google Slides presentation, they plan to create a digital eBook to publish and share with our friends around the world.

This site is an example of using resources like Tackk and Google Docs to start a project with little or no out-of-pocket costs. It makes it easy to experiment and try multiple ideas.

CIESE Online Tele-Collaborative Classroom Projects

CIESE has collected some exemplary global computer-assisted collaboration projects. This set is intrinsically global because the outcomes depend on comparisons from environments around the world. Key examples: circumference of the globe and the impact of living near the equator; boiling points in different places; the role of craters in various settings; and the contents of ponds. Students actually become true scientists and enjoy collaboration with their colleagues all over the globe.

7 Steps For Starting A Global Collaboration Project

Pernille Ripp, a seventh grade teacher at Oregon Middle School in Wisconsin, took "a spark of an idea" — to connect students and teachers worldwide by reading one single book aloud — and turned it into a successful global collaboration project.

In this ISTE article, she offers a few simple steps to set you up for success.

Computer-assisted collaboration projects show students that the Internet can do more than just replace the library and the telephone. Working with fellow students around the globe, that can learn about much more than just the course work at hand.
