I stumbled across The Alice Project a few weeks ago. It was the end of the semester and I didn’t have time to check it out. I thought it was worth a good look-see, though, so I saved it in my Diigo library. I have recently had some time to go back over things I had saved, and came across The Alice Project again.
What an amazing idea! Here’s an excerpt from the blog:
Over 6 weeks, Mr. Long challenged 57 students to analyze Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland — via their copies of The Annotated Alice — by publishing their questions & reflections in real-time on a very global scale…The goal was for the students’ learning/discovery experience to conceptually mirror Alice ‘finding her way’ through Wonderland.
In my search for ways to incorporate technology into the classroom, this has got to be one of the best examples. Forget “upgrading” to an interactive whiteboard (which, while cool, doesn’t really “incorporate” much in a new way), technology is seamlessly woven into this project… it’s not the focus, it’s the vehicle.
I say more of this, please!
