2010-2011: A New School Year...and New Ideas to Share

A friend and colleague of mine, Rick Glass, from Warsaw, Indiana has launched his new classroom website that will be a portal to many fabulous, integrated, collaborative projects from around the globe.  Students from Lincoln know Mr. Glass and the Glass Class quite well as they teamed with us in the 2008-2009 Global Virtual Classroom Contest.  That year we took first place in the contest and earned an additional award for Exceptional Helping Focus for our Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive to help the Combined Community Services Food Bank in Warsaw.  Together we have participated in our friend Marsha Goren's Globaldreamers project, whose mission and dream is worldwide peace. Another great project is Around the World with 80 Schools, it is a challenging project of trying to Skype with eighty schools from around the globe. Here's to another great school year!
