"Collaboration enhances the learning process by letting students interact with the information they are studying". 

arcticblast.polarhusky.com Enter Collaborative Zone 
(if a registered school)

The Lotus QuickPlace Collaborative Zones are a premiere element of the Arctic Blast expedition -  offered to the first 1000 schools to register within North America (due to capacity restrictions).

Made possible by Lotus QuickPlace technology, Collaboration Zones provide in-depth coverage of topics ranging from winter ecology to world resource use. The Lotus QuickPlace Collaboration Zones enhance learning by letting students interact with the information they are studying. Within 8 Collaboration Zones you and your students can experience REAL online collaboration.

Students can answer discussion questions, participate in collaborative activities, surveys, and Lotus Sametime moderated chats in a safe, easily navigated environment. Working with hundreds of other classrooms across the North American continent and spurred by the relevant topics, students are pulled by the polar huskies and encouraged to tap into their personal thoughts. 

Teachers can manage class activities, projects, and share lesson plans with other teachers, online, simply by using a standard Web browser. Documents and presentations can be compared and contrasted regardless of compatible programs. Imagine.. Collaborate without the worry! 

Advantages of Lotus QuickPlace
-It's instant - the collaboration is immediate.
-Easy to learn, just point and click. No difficult HTML

How can a teacher have access to a QuickPlace ?
If your school is one of the first thousand to register, you are automatically enrolled into the QuickPlace Collaboration Zone. Upon registration you will be sent an email with your username and password. You will only be able to access Lotus QuickPlace if you have been emailed a user id and password. Please do not share the username and password with your students.

If you would like to receive information on our future Online Classroom Expedition programs involving the Lotus QuickPlace technology, or just to learn more about using Lotus QuickPlace and Lotus Sametime technology in the schools, sign up here.

Without the support of Lotus SameTime technology and the hosting provided by Connectria, the dynamic learning environment of Arctic Blast 2001 would not be possible.
Learn more about Lotus QuickPlace and Lotus Sametime by clicking their respective logos.
