This practical resource shows educators how to use the Internet to help students communicate electronically, reaching beyond the borders of traditional classroom walls. The authors--a lifelong professional developer and a dedicated facilitator of improved K-12 education through her work with graduate students in school leadership--provide the how-to for teaching essential foundation elements, including teamwork, Internet research, evaluation of information sources, cross-cultural communication, and thinking skills. Emphasizing practical tools and techniques, their model integrates the internet, common school software, and free online technology tools to create engaging projects that advance 21st-century skills. This book features: (1) Clear steps for teaching Internet-infused projects that meet content standards, while also targeting issues that students find relevant; (2) Examples of project collaborations that link students with classrooms across districts, states, and nations; and (3) A user-friendly format with checklists, resources, and sample lesson templates to help teachers design their own projects.
