Ed Tech integration in the Science Classroom

I probably don't talk about it enough, but we have an AMAZING staff at my school. One of our science teachers is exploring collaborative software and applying it to her science classroom. In trying to create a collaborative environment in her classroom, she started using diigo. The kids got so into it and the teacher was so excited about it...a blog was born. Here it is:

She is sharing her actual classroom results and it think it's worth a visit to her blog. She inspired me to make a move in the IB Extended Essay world. I think I will abolish the required research notecards and just make the kids use diigo for their notetaking. Then they will be able to take that concept and bring it to college with them. Brilliant.
