Please share your name and grade level and some info about the project you'd like to do. If you know your driving question, you can include that. If not, it's OK. You can collaborate with your team to develop that.

I would still like to work with you on a project because I want to connect to higher ed. Please send me a message with your email so that we can connect outside of this discussion board.

PROJECT FOUND

Solmarie Puig's picture

I'm very excited about that effort of Edutopia. I love to make a project where the students think in the ways they can contribute to reduce the effects of contamination specially after all the "boom" of the recent issue ends. What will happen with the marine life? What will be the future test to follow up the cleaning of the gulf? What wiil be the implications in the future? The goverment is making his major effort what will happen later? Please I need some help. All comments and help are welcome

Hope you 9-12 science folks saw this opp from NOAA: http://www.edutopia.org/groups/project-based-learning/27898. Jane Neuenschwander writes that: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of Education has issued a request for applications for formal K-12 education projects that advance inquiry-based Earth system science learning and stewardship directly related to the school curriculum, with a particular emphasis on increasing climate literacy.

To address this goal, this solicitation will support service-learning and professional development projects related to NOAA's mission in the areas of ocean, coastal, Great Lakes, weather and climate sciences, and stewardship. Please note that projects related to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill are encouraged.

Can anyone suggest an affordable program, preferably online? I've looked at Project Foundry, but its fees are outrageous. On the flipside of that are the the business PM systems. My district is technology stunted, so I have no server access.

secondary teacher, special education/intervention

Hello, my name is Debbi. I have been trained to use the project approach for early childhood, and attended a seminar by Lillian katz& Sylvia chard which was phenomenal. Two years ago after many years in primary, I decided to get my special educational and was offered a job at a high school. This year some of my classes will have access to ipads which screams for integrating more technology especially with a strong project. My intervention students will be ELL students, and we know academic conversation increases performance. I'm willing to assist/ participate with any team on the project. Sorry I'm posting this late. My wiki is up& I'm ready to go....

I can't afford Project Foundry either, so I'm going with Google Apps. The full suite is free to schools. I currently use it for teacher, club and team sites if they don't have their own. I'm going to add a group just for my PBL kids. They can share documents, sites, etc. The concept will be: they have one "meta-site", a site that links to all of their sites. They will have a Google Site per project. On that site, they will have a discussion group, documents and spreadsheets, and can share with other kids, me, their parents, but not the public. They can then make public sites for final products. I will be sure to make this as transparent as possible via my site: http://cdat.lanierhs.org

FWIW- Most schools that use Project Foundry utilize Google Apps as well. Project Foundry provides more of the task/milestone management, workflow approval process, automated self-assessment rubrics and learning standard alignment.

Also, your assessment of Project Foundry pricing is a bit exaggerated. Project Foundry costs LESS than one half of one text book per student per year and that includes technical support via phone, email and webinar. Furthermore, compared to other learning management tools, Project Foundry is at the lowest price tier, especially when looking at total cost of ownership.
