Activity 1: Letter of Introduction

Compose a class letter of introduction to be shared with other participating classes and post to Collaboration Central. Things to include in the letter of introduction include:

  • Name of your school, subject, and grade level of your class.
  • Location of your school including city, state/province, country, latitude and longitude (so other students can pin-point your location on the map).
  • What are your schools strengths?
  • What are your schools challenges?
  • What technological resources do you have available to you?
  • What do you think your school could most contribute to this effort?
  • What are your goals and expectations in participating in this collaborative effort?
  • What do you wish to learn from this first meeting?
  • Any other information that you would like to share about your city, school, and community.
  • Note: If possible, conduct a phone or video conference in lieu of introductory letters.
