Posted by Joselyn Todd in Educational Technology, Uncategorized.

The new edition of MidLink Magazine has been published. This new edition is appropriately entitled, “Digital Explorers”. We owe a big thank you to our technical editor, Glenn Gurley who manages and designs the website for MidLink.

Before giving a brief glimpse at what we have in this edition of MidLink, we are announcing an opportunity to join MidLink as a New MidLink Editor. Applications are due by March 16, 2008. MidLink’s mission is to highlight exemplary work from classrooms around the world. If you are interested in joining our group of editors, please go to this link to obtain the application (bottom of the page).

One of the projects in this issue was developed by Karen Kleigman, “Explorations: The Age of Discovery”. This project focuses on students grade 4-7 as researchers in order to become virtual museum docents using Google Earth/Maps. Another project, Compounds Explained, created by the author of this blog, Joselyn Todd, focuses on students assessment of chemical bonding principles using an alternative assessment means- screencasting. “Get Off My Back”, a project created by Brenda Dyck, is an online collaborative math project. Students from around the globe will collaboratively investigate data collected regarding backpack weight, size, etc. The final project in this edition is a Web 2.0 infused project developed by Glenn Gurley. “If Stones Could Speak” is a collaborative project in which students identify important stones in history and share from the stone’s point of view, the historical importance of the time period in which it represents.

Finally, this issue also includes a wealth of information regarding Web 2.0 tools, software and other resources. Don’t miss out on this issue and we challenge you to become involved in one of these projects by e-mailing the editor-creator.
