Online Projects

Is this your school's first year on the Web? Are you looking for a meaningful way to connect your curriculum with the online world? This month's Spotlight features a variety of organized, time-tested online collaborative projects that may help. If you want to get involved with any of these projects, contact each project's organizers directly.

The Wild Ones
Your class or your whole school can get involved in this wildlife monitoring project organized by The Wild Ones, under the sponsorship of The Wildlife Preservation Trust International.

Journey North
Back for another year, Journey North is the annual online learning adventure that engages students in a global study of wildlife migration and seasonal change. Register your class, and you'll watch as spring sweeps northward across continental North America.

Live From Mars
In the course of the next decade, NASA will launch a series of spacecraft to orbit Mars and land on its surface. These missions will focus on studying the conditions for emergent life on Mars, particularly the history of water and climate. By participating in this project, you'll have access to mission information almost immediately.

The Electronic Emissary
By identifying a curricular area of interest, the Electronic Emissary can "match" you with a subject matter expert who has volunteered to be an online mentor for your classroom activities.

Global SchoolNet's Internet Projects Registry
Global SchoolNet keeps a comprehensive collection online educational projects. This clearinghouse of collaborative possibilities should surely lead you to an appropriate project for your classroom.
