Now that I've had the chance to look at the blog link, there are some really cool ideas that will work. Thanks! Have you heard of the National History Education Clearinghouse? . I've come across this site via a mailing that I got earlier this year. Now that I'm curious, what are some of the other things that you've read about?
Here are several more examples you can add to your list. This blog is written by Harriett Tubman and I've seen one written by someone who lived through the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. We didn't do these blogs but thought they were neat. Students wrote blogs as space tourists. Here's Diary of Anne Fairweather, a fictitious convict. Here is a ning done by people who were involved in the Civil Right Movement and people who were at the Continental Congress., We did podcasts as passengers and crew of the Titanic, you can see them here. These projects, IMHO, raise the bar for critical thinking, synthesis, analysis, and evaluation.

My name is MaryLou & since I was turned-on to this incredible world of Online Personal Learning Networks three days ago I have Twitter'ed, Flickr'ed, Wordle'd, loaded Google Reader & subscribed to entirely too many feeds, created a Del.icio.us library so I can tag everything that doesn't have an RSS, and I'm determined to have my Pageflakes established before the stroke of midnight! I'm a "seasoned" educator ( >10 yrs but <20 in secondary science) who is passionate about science & technology and I love to learn...I feel like I am finally home.
Hi everyone: I'm happy to be here.
I do public relations work (newsletter, calendars, press) for nine school districts in Westchester County, NY, and have become a sort-of-expert for a number of people and organizations here on using Web 2.0. Other school PR folks have taken my workshops, and I have a blog, School Communications 2.0, about how to communicate via Web 2.0. I hope to simply network here and occasionally mine this Ning site for great post ideas. I recently mentioned this site in a blog entry, Nings for Educators. Looking forward to using your expertise and experience to learn more!
My name's Cecilia, I'm a Brazilian teacher who lives in the UK. I work as a TA in a primary school and I teach Spanish/ EAL to children. I also teach Portuguese to private students, all of them are adults.
I'm very much into applying ICT in my lessons and I will implement many resources I found when I'm back to Brazil next year. I will teach English there. =)
