HI Janice, I am not familiar with Jabber. How does it work?  You can contact me at toniobarton@gmail.com 

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you.  Crazy month. Let's try to talk through email.

Hi Toni,

Great!  I think I can connect with you by calling you on jabber.  What is you email address?  I am not in a PYP school, but I continue to do and use very similar approaches where I am teaching now.  Right now, we are working on an adaptations unit in life science.  We would love to connect!

HI Janice, I would be interested in connecting somehow. Do you have a Skype account? Is your current school PYP? Maybe we can look at some units and see if we can connect something. We do not have the Cisco telepresence.

I am a 3/4 teacher in Phoenix AZ and am interested in global collaboration.  I have Cisco telepresence in my classroom, so we could definitely set up something together.  I was a PYP teacher in Moscow, Russia where I lived for 11 years, and now am in the States.

Is anyone in this group still active? I am a school librarian for K-5 PYP school in Colorado and I am very interested in connecting with others for global projects.

Have you seen the PYP Exhibition Ning? Started by friend and colleague, Tod Baker, at IST in Tianjin.

Leigh, the community at PYP threads started by Kathy Epps looks interesting and vibrant. I challenge you to join and share what develops back here on this Ning in terms of global collaborative projects.

And now, I'm in! :)
Thanks Leigh!

Deniz was part of PYP and involved in a collaborative The Lunch Box Project that seemed to be open an any number of schools communicating via a wiki, emails and maybe Skype. One good example!
