B. Finding Projects, Partners & Collaborative Tools

3. Locating Projects and Partners

The number of educational web sites and the number of networked based projects increase daily. With so many projects and sites to choose from, it's hard to know where to begin. The project registries and mailing lists below are provided as starting points to help you locate projects appropriate for your students.

Project Registries maintain current announcements of projects submitted by other teachers and many commercial scale projects.

Mailing Lists send project announcements directly to you via email, so you don't need to check in with your Web browser.
