Happy holidays! At the moment I am developing a course for educators in the Middle East on using technology to address key areas of need within "school communities". Each team of educators will develop a technology facilitated project throughout the spring.
As part of the course readings, I would like to highlight several examples of creative and high-impact technology-facilitated projects throughout the world.
If you have or know of a great projects, I would be grateful if you could post a link to the project below.

Can you give some examples of the kinds of technology you are interested in hearing about?
Check out the ePals/National Geographic projects posted at www.epals.com/projects. These have a clear structure (in English) and a limit defined at the beginning (typically 5-6 emails exchanged or other activities undertaken using various technologies, including possibly digital camera, video, audio, and more).
Also check out the teacher-created projects at: http://www.epals.com/projects/info.aspx?divid=spotlight_main.
Many ePals participants from the Middle East are learning English, so the projects they engage in allow for English language practice with native speakers.
I do a webinar, ePals 101, and could arrange to do a session for you by Skype with enough advance notice. Or sign up for a webinar at: http://epals.101.sgizmo.com.
Many parts of ePals, including their projects, are free to use.
Students can also post their final work on the Student Media Galleries: http://www.epals.com/media/87/default.aspx
Up to 27 million unique viewers monthly....quite a wide gallery for student work being posted safely!
I am from the middle east. I am from Israel.
How can we collaborate?
