The BRIDGE Troll Patrol
The Bridge <www.marine-ed.org>, a website designed to provide educators with the best ocean science resources available on-line, is hoping to recruit participants in its TROLLs program.
The TROLLs (Teacher Reviewers of On-Line Learning) program allows educators the opportunity to select websites for the Bridge. The Bridge staff receives numerous nominations for sites to be added, and TROLLS help sift through these sites to find those most useful to educators. Sites need to be appropriate for elementary and/or secondary education, and user-friendly enough for novice websurfers.
As a TROLL, you will learn about web resources from the inside and be an official member of the nationally recognized Bridge project. You will be acknowledged on a special Bridge web page and your top "picks" will be highlighted monthly on the Bridge main page. In addition, TROLLs earn professional development certificates (1 hour of professional development for every 4 sites reviewed) and other great rewards. For reviewing 2 sites, we'll send you a Bridge mouse pad; for 10 sites you may choose an apron or a hat bearing our logo; and for 25 sites you'll have the choice of a book bag or a denim shirt embroidered with the Bridge logo. Site review credits can also be earned by encouraging a colleague to become an active TROLL.
To learn more about or to participate in the TROLLs program, visit the Bridge TROLL website at www.marine-ed.org/bridge/indextrolls.html, or contact Laura Rose at email@example.com.
The Bridge is coordinated by The Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary, and is a National Oceanographic Partnership Program project. Sponsoring partners are The Sea Grant Educators Network and The National Marine Educators Association.
