ePals Global Community PROJECT info

ePals Global Community PROJECT info | Project Based Learning Resources for Primary Students | Scoop.it
ePals is the social network optimized for K-12 learning. Over half a million classrooms in 200 countries and territories have joined the ePals Global Community to connect, collaborate and exchange ideas.
Michelle Thomson's insight:

These are establised projects that are solidly PBL structured.  Many of the people on the site you can connect with are looking casual pen pals.  I suggest developing your own PBL project and posting it to find collaborators.

 

Be sure to check out the other resources if you want to develop your own "mini-project". This is a platform to share book/movie reviews, poems, opinions, engage in surveys, comment on photos, write stories to match posted student art work, and contribute to an "Our Town" wiki.
