Name:Buddy Project

Brief Description of the Site:
Buddy uses a technology anytime and anywhere approach to teaching. There is an emphasis placed on home, school, community, and learning beyond the classroom. Lessons and Spotlight lessons have been written and posted by participating Indiana schools. There are many "How to" PDF files and articles.

How to use the site:
The Buddy Project is Indiana-based but teachers and administrators everywhere will find plenty of ideas on how to create a link between teachers, parents, school and home. Teachers can read articles and try lessons written by classroom teachers for this collaborative effort. Visitors can see how groups of teachers and schools in Indiana have created a portal based on their needs instead of relying on outside, commercial portals to do it.
