I am an eLanguages facilitator. I have one suggestion for your
excellent Music Project. At the top of the page, click add, and
select Forum. Using this tool, you will be able to blog and post up
quick responses between the partner schools. It is best to use this
with students (IWB or in groups around a single computer) as it is a
teacher led or teacher
supervised activity. Messages can be posted, edited and deleted.
email your partner and get replies and more messages posted back.
When it gets too full, archive it. Use the forum on the right (the
one with the mouth) for teacher communication about the project's
progress. We find that forums bring a project to life and speed it
This forum opens on a new page, the one above will display comments.
If the one above gets too full, just archive some of the comments.
I think this forum is useful for teacher discussions about the
project, rather than comments and messages between classes.
