My final project with my 8th grade students was to get them to think of what school would look like if:
1. They were in charge of all of their learning (going with the assumption that there was material they had to master)
2. They were no longer bound by the clock, calendar, age restrictions or walls.
The task was then to compile a directory of all of the tools they’d like to be able to use. I sent them to Go2web20.net for some ideas. (If you haven’t been to that site, buckle your seatbelt!)
They chose a tool and created a profile for it. There are some duplicates but they indicate interest level so I left them in. It’s a dynamic document, so there will be some spelling mistakes as kids add then revise. We hope you enjoy- you can find the directory at:
