  • Why don't we do an exchange? We were thinking of putting together an exhibit full of artifacts and interesting things we learn from one another. Rachel, one of our teachers, teaches an interior design class. Kerri teaches art and I teach world foods. I think it would be cool if we could learn about one another in these areas. Do you use any web 2.0 tools?

  • Shilpa,
    My gmail is districtinitiative@gmail.com. We would like to collaborate on a project that would incorporate art, food, and textiles/design. Would this work? If so, I will put together a proposal.

  • I will be in touch tomorrow via gmail. Thanks for your interest.
  • Shilpa,
    Thank you for getting back to me. I will put together a plan and submit it to you. Students in my World Food class explore culture and geography as well as cuisine. Have you facilitated any projects in the past that were successful?

  • I teach a high school world foods class and also hosted an "International Dinner" at my school. Would you like to collaborate on a global foods project?
  • Hello!

    I have just joined this ning to collaborate with others. Perhaps you or you may know of someone who may be interested.

    Please let me know if you may be interested. I'll also send you email.

    Here is the project description:

    Our elementary school will undertake a culture study of India next semester (February 2009 - June 2009), and we are looking for an elementary school (or schools) in India to partner with us in learning.

    We study the various aspects of India: geography, architecture, music, languages, traditions, religion, food, and art.

    Specifically, we would like to collaborate with students in India through sharing with each other’s rtwork and conversations using VoiceThread.

    We would also like to Skype with students and teachers. (We'll work through time differences!)

    Goal: Sharing student artwork and conversations using VoiceThread
    1. Teachers connect (via email or Skype) and discuss specifics on selecting the artwork topics.
    2. Each teacher creates a VoiceThread.
    3. Teachers determine the topic of the artwork to create and share (What did you have for breakfast? What do you do for fun? What are you learning in school? Where do you live? etc.).
    4. Each group of students creates artwork on a mutually agreed upon project.
    5. Digital photos are taken of the artwork, and the photos are uploaded to VoiceThread. Children record their voice about their artwork.
    6. The VoiceThread is shared with the students in India, and they can leave their comments on the VoiceThread. The VoiceThread created by the students in India is shared with the students in Alabama, and they can leave their comments.
    7. After students have commented on each other's VoiceThread, they will be able to speak with each other using Skype. (We'll work through the time differences. We may even have a spend the night party at the school for participating students!)

    (NOTE: Teachers may decide to undertake one or more pieces of artwork.)
