We The Teachers - Connect with other teachers, finding teaching materials, sharing resources

These collaboration ideas came from a presentation at the MADLaT Conference on May 6, 2010 in Winnipeg during a presentations by Mali Bickey and Jim Carelton "Learning With the World - Using Technology to Connect Students in Project Based Learning".

Rock Our World
Using Apple’s GarageBand, each country creates a 30 second drum beat. Every Friday, that drum rotates to another country, where the bass guitar is added. It keeps getting passed along, from country to country. At each stop, one more instrument is added. When it comes back to the original country, it has touched students from all over the world!
