Thank you, Norbert! That sounds great. We begin school on August 9th. We are able to do just about anything to connect with you - through any of the online applications such as Voicethread (which is terrific!), or through Skype or Google video chat. I understand how busy you must be and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to work with us! I will be in touch.
Greetings, Norbert, from Memphis, Tennessee, USA! My name is Ken Greene and I am the general music teacher and choir director at Ridgeway Middle School. Would you be interested in participating in a "global collaboration" with me and my students? We have had a lot of success collaborating with students in other countries - cultural exchange projects, live video chats, Voicethread communication - and we are anxious to continue meeting and working with new friends.
We work with online applications such as Glogster, Voicethread, and Blogger to name a few. We have even participated in several live video chats using Skype and Google Video Chat. If you would like to visit my web site to see what kind of work we have done, the address is: http://web.me.com/knrgreene/RMSMusicMediaNetwork/Welcome.html.
My students have expressed a strong interest in meeting and working with students in Africa. If you will not be able to participate, perhaps you could forward this request to one of your teachers. I am open to any and all types of collaborative work.
Thank you for reading and considering my request. I hope to hear from you soon!
