To all who attended this afternoon's workshop,

Thank you for your listening! I know it's not easy at the end of a long day when the weather is calling us to get outside. Hope you'll take some time to browse. I look forward to your emails.

As there was no evaluation form, please send along your suggestions for future workshops. It would be great to have some of you participate in the 15-hr course this coming spring. It should be fun -- and you will have a usable product when the course is over.

Warm regards,

Project Organizers provide a one-to-one workspace for students to access and respond to teacher developed units of study and to provide two-way communication between student and teacher. Project organizers support whole-class instruction, small group instruction, collaborative learning, and individual learning both within the classroom and from any location which has a computer and internet access. Organizers may be developed for: a single concept, for a mini-lesson, or to support a multi-week unit of study on a major topic. Organizers incorporate multiple media: text, images, audio, video, web-based games, and activities, website links etc. – as appropriate to reach and engage students of all levels and learning styles.  These web-based technology have been called Web 2.0 technologies.
