The project has started – hooray.
Earlier this week my students (6graders) made in group of 2-4 a mini-video of their house. They used their smart phones and the bambuser-app, a live broadcast service and they had already received in class a handout with useful phrases (e.g. That’s my bedroom…, let me quickly get to the next room)
Kamille’s students in Denmark did the same thing. The had received the same handout, and had the same task: film your home. Yesterday my students went into the computer lab and watched the Danish house tour, and vice versa. My kids loved it, and they immediately asked me to set up a Facebook group so that they could actually chat with the kids in Denmark. And this is great – it’s the kids who want to be in touch and want to find out more about them, and not me pushing them. I love it. That’s how successful internationalization works.
The project was hardly any preparation, a little bit of coordination, but that’s it. It is a true KISS project and I’m really looking forward to have an online game with the kids in Denmark ne
