Global Collaboration Project Overview
Friendship Project With Schools Around The World
Students work in pairs or small groups. They collaborate with students in one of the partner schools.
We've gone global!
We are making friends around the World, as we partner with other schools.
We learn about each other's countries, customs, weather, cultures, and schools. We think about the similarities and differences of our countries - currency, time, size, distance, language, and more. We find each other's hometowns using Google Earth and Google Maps. Although we may be thousands of miles apart, we can connect with each other, making the distances that separate us seem unimportant. We can see and hear each other as we connect via iChat. Our students and teachers can do collaborative projects, using the WEB 2.0 tools available with today's technologies. Best of all, we've been able to make new friends and learn about other parts of the World.
