Finding, Choosing and Collaborating via ePals
  • Original Message ----- From Still,Beth
  • To Howie Joan DiBlasi Sent Monday, February
    25, 2008 902 PMSubject RE Thanks from
    Scottsbluff
  • Howie,Thank you for keeping in touch. I have to
    share one thing that I have done this week. Out
    of all of the suggestions you shared last week I
    was most intrigued with the ePals program. I
    immediately registered and posted a profile. I
    literally got goosebumps when I sent my first
    international email-----which was to Greece. Over
    the last few days I have heard back from schools
    in Japan, Germany, and Colombia. By the end of
    the week several of my students will
    probably receive their first correspondance from
    their penpals. I cannot even begin to tell you
    how excited my students are about this project!
    Thank you for telling me about it.

  • Travel Buddy Exchange
  • Sat, 10/20/2007 - 0110 sandim1
  • I would love to set up a "travel buddy" project
    for 1st or 2nd grade level students in my school.
    Years ago, I had done this via snail mail and
    would like to update it using ePals email.
  • Basically, 2 classes (one from each
    school-preferably far away) would exchange a
    small doll or stuffed animal and send it to the
    other school along with a blank journal notebook.
    The receiving school would send the doll and
    journal home with a different student each night
    and the family would write down what "the doll"
    had seen or done that day.

96
What is Project Based Learning?
  • Students engaged in project-based learning (PBL)
    activities "work in groups to solve challenging
    problems that are authentic, curriculum-based,
    and often interdisciplinary" (McGrath, 2003). 
    Project-based learning is a component of an
    inquiry-based approach to learning. In this
    approach, students create knowledge and
    understanding through learning activities built
    around intellectual inquiry and a high degree of
    engagement with meaningful tasks.

What is Visual Literacy
  • Ability to understand and produce visual images
  • Reading and writing of images

116
Digital Story Telling-what is it?
  • Digital Storytelling is the modern expression of
    the ancient art of storytelling. Digital stories
    derive their power by weaving images, music,
    narrative and voice together, thereby giving deep
    dimension and vivid color to characters,
    situations, experiences, and insights.

Will you be the 10th person?
  • For every nine people who denounce innovation,
    only one will encourage it.
  • For every nine people who do things the way they
    have always been done, only one will ever wonder
    if there is a better way.
  • For every nine people who stand in line in front
    of a locked building, only one will ever come
    around and check the back door.
  • Our progress as a species rests squarely on the
    shoulders of that tenth person. The nine are
    satisfied with things they are told are valuable.
  • Person 10 determines for himself what has value.

Digital Disconnect In it's fifth annual survey of
more than 367,000 educators and students, Project
Tomorrow found a growing "digital disconnect"
between what role technology should play in the
classroom and how well schools are preparing
students for the workplace. While 66 percent of
school administrators think their schools are
"doing a good job preparing students for the jobs
and careers of the future," more than 40 percent
of middle and high school students said teachers
actually limit their use of technology. In
addition, 45 percent of middle and high school
students indicated that tools meant to protect
them, such as firewalls and filters, actually
inhibit their learning..
