Thought you would want to know that Kim Cofino has been a member of ePals Global Community since she was a teacher in Germany in 2002. No Twitter or Ning in those days to find other classrooms.

Hi Adrienne,

I just looked at the great link you gave me ( when I requested recommendations several months ago about online platforms/organizations for global collaboration. So much useful information! I was wondering if you have compiled a list of global school partnerships/ collaborative projects best practices or know of where I might find one? Also, through your research/experience do any organizations stand out as being expecially good with finding schools to partner with in Africa?

A lot of questions, I know. Only if you have time. Thanks!

So glad you are helping to update the US DOE guide to international collaboration! I share it with lots of teachers!
Here are some projects with a great deal of worldwide use, from ePals, available at no charge:
ePals Projects for Classroom Collaboration
Welcome to the ePals Projects Page! The global topics are standards-based. Each project can be used as is or customized to your classroom’s needs. To find a classroom partner, check the Project Forums for posts by classrooms interested in a particular project. Alternatively, search the “Connect with Another Classroom” search box on ePals’ home page. Also search the “Ongoing Projects” and “ePals Wanted” forums.
After you find a classroom to collaborate on a Project, we recommend that the two teachers clarify some logistical issues before starting.

The ePals/National Geographic project topics are:
* The Way We Are (an easy way to get started in global collaborative projects)
* Digital Storytelling (student products can be posted at ePals Video Vault after review by ePals staff)
* Projects with science focus: Water, Weather, Natural Disasters, Habitats, Global Warming, Maps.
* Eduteka is translating the projects into Spanish.

Also, check out the teacher-created projects from the ePals Ambassadors:

It's fun to read student Q&As posted in the Student Project Forums.

Please let me know if you have questions or need additional information about these free projects for your publication.
