In the past I have mentioned teachersconnecting.com, but this "virtual handshake between teachers" website is definitely worth mentioning again. Those wishing to start collaborative projects, whether large-scale or very simple and small, should sign up for a free account at this website and build their profile. Created by Ben Hazzard of Ontario, Canada, TeachersConnecting.com has been deemed the "eharmony" of collaborative educational projects. In addition to finding "matches" of all levels of connectivity, constructivism, and collaborative comforts, one can also listen to the accompanying Teachers Connecting Podcast hosted by Ben Hazzard and Joan Badger (formally known as the SMART Board Lessons Podcast hosts).
Tune in to Episode 4 to also hear my round-up report of FETC.
