Description

A social-media/educational website developed to enable geographically-dispersed homeschool students to engage with each other online during the week to plan, write, edit, and prepare their bi-weekly printed newspaper at the Green School (now Greenspring) Cooperative in Middletown, CT.

Technology

The site was extremely versatile and successful for this educational social networking experience.    In this site we used: file sharing, discussion forums, image uploading, task lists, direct email communication, resource sharing, and much more.   The use of technology for this program enable the kids to do most of the planning, writing, chatting work from home, so the weekly class time could be used for in-house interviews, page layout and design, and other activities that required face-to-face time.

Description

An interactive website to supplement an 8 week geography class for middle schoolers.  Homework, readings and assignments were all given online.

Technology

This site originally utilized the free social-networking tools developed by nexo.com.  The company was subsequently acquired by Shutterfly and is now known as shutterfly share.  I migrated the site from nexo to shutterfly to archive the content developed for this class.
