Using the middle school "country study" project as an example, this presentation shows you how one social studies department transformed a tradition 3-ring binder approach to a project portfolio to an online Wiki "binder" integrating several Web 2.0 tools and giving students practice in meeting NETS and ICT standards! Using PBWorks as a foundation for the "electronic binder" students build a web page presenting research on their country and integrate the use of online graphing tools, Glogster pages, and more. This can be applied to any curriculum and probably works best with grades 6 - 12. Discover how students built an electronic binder (PBWorks Wiki) to attractively present their year long research on their country including imported images, written biographies, graphs, scanned "drawn" maps, time lines, and more.
