Global SchoolNet Foundation

This site can rightly claim to have some of the best collaborative online projects, tools and resources for teachers on the Internet.

Global SchoolNet Foundation was founded in the early 1980's, by two San Diego teachers, Yvonne Marie Andres and Al Rogers, who believed that the Internet could significantly impact learning.  Their teaching experience and talents together with their devoted team give each of their many projects that personal touch which is crucial to beginning teachers and essential for the success of telecommunications projects in education.

The site itself has a very straight forward and lean appearance, with emphasis placed on content.  Links on the left hand side organize all the major links of the site into a wealth of project ideas, contests, articles, mailing lists and archives.  Click on the Global Schoolhouse link to check on the following: CyberFair, Doors to Diplomacy, GeoGame, Newsday, Online Expeditions, Conferencing, Make a Difference, News Lists, Professional Development, Resource Links, Projects Registry and GSN Store.  Projects range in skill level for the novice to the expert.

GeoGame is a fun and easy to run educational game. It is designed to teach middle to upper elementary students geography terms, learn how to read and interpret maps and increase awareness of geographical and cultural diversity.  There are great teaching strategies and map resources, currency, time and measurement converters, language translators, postal and zip codes and area phone codes to supplement the GeoGame.  This was one of the best ways I found to teach students map reading and geography terms.

Another fun and easy to run project is the Travel Buddy Project.  Travel Buddy projects are a fun and motivating way to increase science, math, social studies or  literacy skills in primary students.  There are links here to Flat Stanley: - (Ontario, Canada); Traveling Techno Buddy:, NY); Tunia the Rhode Island Ladybug:  (Providence, Rhode Island)
Lockart Buddies: (Cairns, Australia).
Also found on this site is the Project Registry which lists the best collaborative projects from around the world, searchable by topic, grade, month, curriculum, technologies used and level of expertise required. This registry allows teachers to do long term planning.

If you’re looking for an Internet project for your class, regardless of your expertise, this is a great site to visit and try out a project.
