NetHappenings continues to announce K12 school websites and school attributes in the United States where you find links to students’ #STEAM video projects.
Students evidence their skills and show “proof of work” to the public.
Search using #hashtags.
The data base of K12 School Websites is a curated public folklore project, with over 100,000 K12 school websites found on the K12Playground.com
July 9, 1998 Educational CyberPlayground migrated and launched Gleason’s “Hot List” of the first school websites ever built on planet earth. This data became the first public database of school websites ever built by teachers and their students. We allowed the public to enter school information. Every submission was vetted by Karen Ellis. This has always been a curated public folklore project found by the earliest search engines circa 1996.
