This past year I had my first experience with DonorsChoose.org. I had no prior knowledge of this site. One day at my bank, the teller found out I was a teacher and handed me a gift card from the bank. It was worth $25 that she said I could use towards any one of my schools. That was not quite true. I could use it towards any one of my schools as long as one of the teachers at that school had a project up on DonorsChoose.org.
For those of you who are not familiar with this site, here is an informative video.
I quickly navigated through the site, found a project from a colleague of mine at one of my schools, and donated the $25. DonorsChoose is becoming very popular and is probably being used by a teacher at your school. In my next blog post discussing DonorsChoose.org, I will explore ways the website is being used.
Do you think DonorsChoose.org is a Web2.0 tool?
