From Joel Glastetter

See examples of websites where teachers can publish student projects, find lessons posted by other teachers, or publish their own lessons for global audiences.
Showcase student work online for authentic, global audiences. In today's digital age, students are more connected than ever before, giving educators opportunities to engage and empower them by publishing their work online. Harness the power of the Internet to challenge and inspire young learners.
When students have the opportunity to share their work with a wider audience, it can motivate them to research, revise, and edit more carefully. They are more likely to collaborate with and learn from each other. They develop critical thinking and communication skills, learn to present ideas in clear and concise ways, and appreciate feedback.
Teachers can also collaborate, share, and learn from each other. They can publish their lessons online, giving them opportunities to connect with other educators, get valuable feedback, and share their expertise. They can also find high-quality lessons written and published by other educators. Plus, it's a great way to save time and get new ideas for their own classes.
This presentation will explore the benefits of publishing student work online, and provide real examples of student projects. It will also showcase examples of published teachers' lessons that can be replicated for your own classes or used "as is." And, it will share resources for educators who want to join online projects, including the presenter's online projects, to publish their students, or get started doing it themselves. Overall, there are many benefits of publishing student work and publishing teacher lessons online.
