I learned from Vicki Allen today about a great online tool for use in teacher professional development: Project Poster. It is free, and lets users turn in projects that include attachments like digital photos. According to the website:
Project Poster allows students to make online school projects and short reports quickly and easily. Students can include one image (.gif or .jpg format), four links to other Web pages, and a report of up to 3,500 characters. These posters are available to the public on the Internet after they have been reviewed. The reports MUST relate to a school subject and the teacher must register so his/her students can use Project Poster, but there is NO CHARGE for its use.
I haven’t used this yet, but I will in upcoming professional development sessions with teachers! Thanks Vicki! Vicki, btw, is a Texas-based AT&T Education advocate (in Dallas) and used pbwiki for the first time this week for her Erosion Explosion! workshop with teachers in Allen ISD. I love hanging out with innovative folks like Vicki who are always learning and sharing new ideas! 🙂
