I would want to share with you a new tool for helping teachers and students to set up exchange projects around the world.
Skolinks is a 100% free site, a secure environment and easy to use, for youth (6 – 25 years old) as well as for teachers. Youth can find their own correspondants while teachers can find a safe and friendly environment for creating classroom partnerships from around the world.
Correspondance wets the appetite for reading, writing, discovering and exchanging information with other people. It also allows you to open yourself up to others and to a different world and helps you get a better understanding of others, thus allowing acceptance of differences in perspective.
Moreover, whether its as an individual or as a class, it creates an efficient and fun way to learn another language by providing an authentic context for communication.
All you need is an email address to create your own account. Once your account is activated, you can complete your profile and search for a correspondant by language, age, region of the world or for teachers by grade level, age, subjects taught. After having accepted other Skolinkers as friends, you can contact them and begin to correspond. It’s also possible to do videoconference.
Because it's the most important point for us, here you can find all of our security measures : https://www.skolinks.com/en_GB/how-it-works.html
Skolinks is a project of Skolidarité, a non-profit french association.
Do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions.
