Objective of Collaboration
From east to west, urban or rural, we each live in a unique community. What can we learn from our area, from our varied citizens or natural resources? What can we share with other students that will enhance their view of our country or our world? This standards based project seeks to tap into the creative nature of students as they look at their community with new eyes and explore ways to share their findings with others using videoconferencing and technology as a resource. Organize a team of middle or high school students and create an engaging and dynamic videoconference content program about your community to be offered to classrooms nationally.
