Nancy - students

Quick ?: The 'hand shake' activity - is that just for the teachers or is it to include our students as well at this point?

Comment by Julie Lindsay on March 3, 2012 at 11:45am

Jennifer, I am thinking your handshake can be shared via your team wiki page. I also think you can share this more widely via this Ning. ALSO, we did discuss at our kick-off meeting starting a new blog for all educators in this project. Lisa in the comment below has started me thinking about this again. We really want to showcase and feature the hard work you are all doing.

You all inspire me with your enthusiasm for collaborating and joy for learning!  I wonder if each of you could pick a week and write a blog post about what is going on in the project?  I would like to post this on our many public sites for the world to know - this is too good to hide under any bushels!
