The Activity Wizard is Here! :)

Over the past two years, many of you have asked about the Activity Wizard and other standards-based options that you were accustomed to using. Becausemeeting standards is necessary for K12 education in many countries including the USA and because you have asked to have them here, the iCollaboratory hired a software developer to program the Activity Wizard to support you as you design standards-based lesson plans. 

The BETA version of the Activity Wizard is now available in the iCollaboratory course listings directly under the first Course Category. Remember, it is a BETA version so, we need your feedback to improve it. Please email feedback to

Because we hired a programmer to develop the Activity Wizard and we are a non-profit organization of volunteers, we are requiring at $20.00 tax deductible donation per person for the annual usage. 

To make a donation for the Activity Wizard:
  • Log in to the iCollaboratory at
  • Scroll down the Welcome to the iCollaboratory page and click Activity Wizard 2010-11.
  • You will be guided through a series of Web pages in PayPal that will allow you to contribute your $20.00 donation via credit card.
  • After you have made the payment, permission to use the Activity Wizard for one year is granted and you can start writing standards-based lesson plans.
    • You will receive a receipt via email.
  • If you would rather pay via check or your school is paying for you (about two weeks for processing), please make the check payable to Educational Continuum Org, NFP and mail it to:
Educational Continuum Org, NFP
665 Brierhill Road
Deerfield, IL 60015

I am very excited about moving forward by making the Activity Wizard available.
