In the previous lesson you learned of some places you can go to find keypals for your classes. In this lesson you will look at some of the resources for finding specific telecollaborative projects designed by others, as well as places you can call for involvement in a project you or your class has designed. (You will find that there is some overlap with the previous lesson.)
One of the best places for finding out about projects or calling for involvement in your own is Classroom Connect's teacher mailing list. You can subscribe to this list at:
