This project started 5 years ago, and it won’t be closed. It's Open, no deadline. It goes continuously. We are open to all new ideas. That’s the way we learn.
We go to a very small school in a very small town in a Hungary. We play this collaborative game with my students because it can help them to know more about the world outside, visit other classes, classrooms, meet other students, make friendship. ( otherwise we don’t really have the facility to travelJ this is the only way we can!!!!
