How do you bring your project into Kidlink?
- Contact the Kidproj moderator, Patti Weeg, and introduce your project idea.
- Develop a project description and timeline.
- Include targeted age group.
- Include the 4 Kidlink question requirement for students.
- Encourage thoughtful participation from a global audience involving inquiry, exploration and discovery.
- Define the length of your project.
- Include a reminder that all participation is done across the Kidproj mailing list or one of the Kidproj wwwboards.
- Include suggestions for lesson plans that reflect curriculum standards. A listing of standards by content area is a good idea.
- Provide a list of resources for teachers and students if possible.
- Encourage dialogue among participants in your project. You are the teacher in a "virtual classroom" where your interaction is important. Support the participating students and encourage them to develop fresh ideas rather than simply restating ideas they find.
- Contact the Kidproj webmaster, Diane Smith. Kidlink will host a webpage for the project. Decide who will make your webpages:
- HTML by you?
- HTML by Kidproj?
- A sample project - Grandmother and Me
