Back to simplicity. As a Kindergarten teacher I was involved in the Egg Roll project for several years and loved it. What is so simple about a project, you ask? Well Jen has all of the interrelated resources needed to supplement or enhance your current curriculum by using the project as a launch pad for all kinds of wonderful classroom based activities. (She is all about project based learning and using centers for differentiated instruction) The only thing you have to do on the web is to registar for the project and then post your results into a Google Form she creates.
Teachers are very busy and with the potential for technical difficulties which you will see below... It is nice to know that you can still collaborate with thousands of other classrooms by simple adding your classroom results to a growing body of data.Data is a powerful tool. I think Jen is on the right track. She knows teachers and she also know what's possible to accomplish in the classroom on a given day. That combination makes her the number one resource for busy teachers on the web.
