Schools around the world

Join our wiki in this new adventure to show “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, youtube video or simply add pictures giving and sharing 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.

* learned about the educational system in several countries

  3. Great project! I’m going to pass it on to relevant teachers at my school on Monday. Thanks.
