Tool # 7 Digital Projects

Next school year, classroom to classroom will be done with Mr. Brooks and Mr. Benavidez classes using google docs and skype. This will be an ongoing process about the concepts that are presented during the class. 
For my formal project I will use: CIESE - Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education
These are project conducted with other students around the world. I am interested in the "Down the Drain" project and the "Global Sun- Temperature Project"
Global Sun-Temperature Project
Objective: Given a series of situations, materials and formatted sheets, students will be able to create a hypothesis and document the evidence utilizing data collected by them and other students around the world about how the proximity to the equator affects average daily temperature and hours of sunlight
When: Global partners are invited to participate during the months of September until November.
What: Skype and Google docs will be used during the project.
How: Students will have time to collect data during every class period. Students will create a Google document in which they will be able to average the temperature that will be reported to the partners around the world.
