STUDENT-PUBLISHED WORKS WANTED at Camp Internet

The FIELD REPORT ROOMS for each track have been opened so you can post student works completed so far this school year on any subject. We will then connect your spot on the Camp GIS map to these reports, so please post works representative of your classroom activities. You can scan and post art, type in an essay, post a poem, send a photo of a science experiment or field trip with a description – help the students realize they are responsible members of a learning community with-out walls. They do enjoy seeing one another’s work, so let’s make this a focus on COMMUNICATION and SHARING. They can post their own work – or teachers can post their student’s work. We will edit out any incomplete postings before it goes live on the GIS public map, so its OK for students to try a few times to get it right (teachers too!). Posting rooms will be open all month 8am-3pm PST. If you need after hours posting time, just let us know what date and field report room. We will be showcasing your work to the new Superintendent of Public Education so help us make a good presentation!
