NickNacks: Learning Together Around the World
Review by Nancy Schubert
Reprinted from the EdRes mailing list.
NickNacks offers unique information on managing collaborative educational projects on the Internet. The site includes practical tips for: finding projects and participants; developing a collaborative project; exchanging varied file formats; cross-platform collaborations; and lesson planning. Internet tools, resources, sample projects and plans are provided. The site is updated frequently and expanding rapidly.
In addition to providing the most comprehensive information available anywhere on the web regarding collaborative learning projects, NickNacks demonstrates a new aspect of the teacher/parent relationship. The site is developed and maintained by a parent volunteer, who collaborates with teachers both in the classroom and via the Internet, developing and leading projects, and helping train staff and students in computer and telecommunications technology. This site was recently awarded B.E.S.T. Education's July Site Award.
