I've always been impressed with the projects that Keith Kelley does with students in Maine. I first knew Keith as the librarian at Oxford Hills Middle School where he built computers and created movies with students in his after-school computer club as well as acting as DJ at school dances and being a great source of technical and pedagogical knowledge.
Oxford Hills' loss was MSAD 48's gain. Keith now runs the integrated technology classes at Somerset Valley Middle School and Sebasticook Valley Middle School in that progressive district.
To get an idea of the powerful learning that is taking place in his classes, check out the following blogs in which Keith documents and promotes his work with kids, as well as giving an online audience for his students' successes.

Note that Keith is entirely transparent in that he shares course syllabus, rubric, forms, etc. for his projects at each level. Good stuff.
