I really couldn't be happier with the way the Writers' club is shaping up. Check out this conversation on one of the student writer's blogs....
An author from Drysdale in Victoria, Australia is encouraged in his writing, and receives feedback from, students at Castlemaine North in Victoria, Australia and a student in Lahore, Pakistan. This occurred without prompting from the teacher, and occurred on a weekend.
These are precisely the spontaneous interactions I was hoping would eventuate from students sharing the same space. With students from five nations now involved, the capacity for more such spontaneous, global connections seems within reach.
