Showcase | Telecollaborative
We are now
finished this year’s project based on our school-wide theme, Proud
to be Canadian. This year’s project involves 38 classes from Calgary
schools—Cedarbrae Elementary School, Jerry Potts Elementary, Edgemont
Elementary James Short Elementary and Colonel J. Fred Scott Elementary.
Each class that is involved in the project will investigate a different
aspect of what it means to be Canadian. Because of the size of the undertaking,
the projects were divided into five blocks. This allowed us to match classes
from our school with other classes. We are very proud of all aspects of
this project, and invite your to view the work from ALL of the classes
by visiting Proud
to be Canadian.
The projects from our school involve sharing why we are proud to be Canadian.
We invite you to visit our sites and discover what we have learned and
how we feel about being Canadian.
All of these projects will take place both in the computer lab and in
the individual classrooms. It represents collaboration among adults and
children both within and beyond the school walls!
All of our projects are proudly funded by Grassroots Canada through the
Telus Learning Connection.

During the 2001 - 2002 school year, we learned about the environment and
how to protect it. We created and donated 15 quilts to the Calgary Women's
Emergency Shelter. Click here to learn more and share our work. This project
donated a total of 19 quilts and involved 480 students from two schools.
A patch work of stories
Our first telecollaborative project was all about books! We read hundreds
of books and each chose our favorite. We wrote to share why we selected
that book, and each made a quilt block about our favorite book. We donated
16 quilts and matching books to Ronald McDonald House. The project donated
a total of 27 quilts and involved 739 students from three schools.
