The Power of Texas’s Project Share

I am amazed at how many K12 Texas institutions are still not utilizing Project Share as a course management system.  While there is still room for improvement, especially the need for a quality LMS app tool, Project Share is still a great idea and resource to use in a blended learning environment.  Project Share is continuing to improve its product, with new features being introduced this fall.

Questions you may have regarding Project Share.

How will Project Share help my students?  

  1. Resources From Top Reliable Sources:  Students can access primary sources from The New York Time’s Content Knowledge Repository dating back to the mid 1850s.  This is a powerful learning tool that can radically enhance courses and bring LMS to an entire new level.
  2. Collaborative Work Environments:  Project share allows for groups to collaboratively problem solve, share, and model 21st century collaborative work environments.
  3. ePortfolios:  Project Share gives students and teachers a ready made system to publish and showcase work, build resumes, and blog about learning content.

Can parents access content?

Parents, students, teachers, and interested community partners can access content and locate resources on the new Project Share website.

It is time to move past the debate as to why do we need Project Share.  It is time to Think Global and Act Local and unite behind the program!  Take your complaints to the source and let’s fix a great idea.  I have found that Project Share, Epsilen, and developers are very open to ideas of improvement.  Texas, let’s show the world how true 21st century mobile learning can truly benefit a learning community.
