I'm sure she just forgot about LIVE FROM ANTARCTICA 2, beginning January
97. Having participated year before last in LIVE FROM ANTARCTICA, I can
say, without a doubt, there will be a great deal across the disciplines to
look forward to! Check out the site:

There are a number of project opportunities out there, including
electronic field trips, but (imo) you'll find the Passport projects to be
the most accessible and cost effective for the classroom teacher. PTK
efforts have always presented quality content, activities, and
collaborative opportunities with a very comfortable amount of flexibility.
I've been most impressed with the high level of influence PTK participants
have in the flow of the projects. 

The Jason Project, however, is certainly worth a look - especially if
you're near what they call a JASON Primary Interactive Network Site

Committed and involved participants make these sorts of projects
absolutely worth it and successful. I hope you stay with us for LIVE FROM
