Schools around the world

If you would like to heighten your students’ cultural awareness, consider getting involved with Classroom without walls.

This Internet -based collaborative project will allow your students to learn and share information about different cultures.

Let´s open our classroom walls to the world!!!!

Take a look at our brand new project: Schools around the world.

We will start a new project on “Schools around the world“. Students through exchanges and discussions will learn about different schools worldwide.

The idea is to create a visual school network in order to sustain an on-going dialogue about how schools differ worldwide.  Students must prepare a voicethread adding all the information they require relevant for other students to know about their school. The rest of the participants can ask questions about their school.

You can check school calendars around the world thanks to the wonderful work done by Tom Robb.

Teachers interested in joining this project please add yourself to the following chart: Participating Schools.

This project starts in September 2009 and you can join in any time during the year.

Please feel yourself at home!!!

Let´s start sharing and learning together.
