Welcome to the NECC Leadership Symposium wikispace! Let's use this space for discussion, collaboration and creativity. Please begin by providing your bio, contact info, and the brief overview of your presentation (a copy of the one you sent to Sherry Bosch at ISTE will work fine for openers!). Hey btw, wasn't 50 words or less challenging! *grins*

We will be doing the same presentation in two areas. Our presentation will focus on participants using the on line "Zerofootprint" Carbon Calculator. This incredible web tool measures participants carbon footprints based on a series of questions. Participants can also set goals along the way to reduce their carbon footprint. We will also show how this tool can be used to analyse and compare data to cohorts, communities, and countries. Our objective it to show how this tool can be used to link groups of classes so they can work collaboratively to reduce their collective carbon footprint, and essentially have a positive impact on the environment.
