Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Year 7 ICT students from Hawkesdale P12 College love to connect with others across the world. In this session students will share some of their favourite connections, why they enjoyed them and the learning that took place. They will discuss some of the tools they have used eg skype, polycom videoconferencing, google documents, padlet etc,the learning that occured and why they just keep asking for more.
Australia’s time zone means that connections with countries who speak English as a first language can be very difficult. Asian schools are ideal partners for synchronous connections, but language, accents and cultures can then be an interesting challenge as English may be spoken but it could be the second, third or even fourth language of the students we connect with. Students will share how we overcome some of these challenge and share many classroom stories.
