I am joining because I am a 7th grade science teacher and I am pursuing a Master's degree in educational technology. I have traveled internationally to observe and participate in foreign school systems such as Japan, India, and several African countries. I have conducted binational science projects with Japan and am currently undertaking a carbon footprint exchange program with a jr. high school in New Delhi, India. My class has videoconferenced internationally and locally. We do a variety of groups project work using computers in my classroom.
