In an attempt to connect schools and students across the world, I am happy to announce Celebrations Around the World is back for its third outing. This time it is bigger and better!
This project is looking to connect with staff, students, parents, and schools across the world to help build internationally-minded students through inquiry and EdTech.
Getting started couldn’t be simpler:
- Sign up using this Google Form
- Create a response on the Padlet
- Pick a school from those who signed up and arrange a time to connect through Skype or Google Hangouts.
You are invited to share your experiences and understanding of how different celebrations and traditions are expressions of shared beliefs and values.
This project is designed that during your video call you might like to explain something you found interesting in their Padlet post, something you learned or maybe there is something you would like to hear more about.
It can be difficult connecting with schools in Europe or America, so we use https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html before scheduling.
