Hi Ines! Thank you for replying and for your willingness to participate. My school starts in August but it will probably be sometime in September when i start doing stuff with my connections around the world. I will get you all the details once we get closer to school, but i just wanted to thank you and to make sure we stay in touch. A loose description of this project is some corresponding back and forth about our respective schools, countries, culture, etc, then we will see where it goes from there. In the past, i've done picture sharing and video tour of the school. I think it's going to be a cool thing. Thanks again and i will be in touch! Do you have an email address i could use?
Hi. Welcome to Classroom 2.0 I am starting a new program at my school called "Beyond the Classroom" and I hope you will be a part of it. My Goal: connect my students in Brandon, South Dakota, USA to other students around the world to learn about school and life in other countries. I want to connect with five different places around the world and correspond via my blog to learn about culture and life in our respective places. I teach 6th grade (11-12 year olds) but the subject and age doesn’t matter. I have done this in the past with places like Turkey, Scotland, and Brazil. There are many things we can do with this to make it a very enriching experience. If you are willing to be a part of this, we will talk about the details at that point. My school year starts August 22, 2011. Visit my blog to learn a little bit about me and my teaching. http://waterforsixthgrade.blogspot.com
