I am a technology specialist for a school in Houston, Texas in the United States. I work with 5th and 6th grade students and teachers. I currently have a technology club made up for students and I want them to work with other students from other places using tools such as Edmodo to collaboration on projects using web 2.0 tools in all content areas. I dont have a set lesson plan in mind - would love to create it with some ideas from other professionals that also would like their students to participate. It does not have to be the same grade levels as us - I would be willing to work with some younger or older students as well.
Hope to hear from people so we can start when school year starts (end of Aug/beginning of Sept)
We have developed a collaborative platform which works very well for a classroom environment.
Would you like me to share the site with you?
You can set up lesson plans do AV chat with students, share data all in a safe environment
Let me know. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I am sorry for not getting back to you. I am just now starting Tech Club at my campus. I will have 3 groups of 5th grade and 3 groups of 6th grade technology club. We really do not have a meeting time per say - we do a lot of online items and communicate through email and web 2.0 tools. I would love to partner each group with a school and have them do projects together using Edmodo or maybe Wiki Spaces to communicate between schools. A Skype call to start would be fun to get the groups to know each other. Let me know what you think and if you would still be interested in participating!!
It sounds interesting. I also work with 5th & 6th graders but my 6th graders are currently involved in a Flat Classroom Project called Digiteen/Digitween for the 1st semester. We use Edmodo, Glogster & Voicethread. If you would like some involvement from 5th graders and/or 6th graders 2nd semester, we would love to talk to you.
Hi again Jorge,
My edit was timed out before my additions. We are from Columbus, OH (EST). I would really love something for my 5th graders this semester. Second semester my 6th graders will be doing multimedia project and S.T.E.M. projects (NXT robots & perhaps Scratch). It would be fun to collaborate on some of that as well. I am currently becoming FlatClassroom Certified and would be willing to help with the management of students and projects. Setting up a shared Google Doc or Wiki with those who expressed interest in involvement might be a start. Let me know if I can help and whether you still have room for my 5th graders. I also have ideas for using some free Web 2.0 tools for the under age 13 group that can be used for collaboration.
