Today in our ICT class we linked-up with a teacher Mrs. Leo and two students Oshika and Olivia. They were from Jackson school in Boston, USA. Using photos and talking to use they gave us a tour of their school. I learnt that at their school they learn Spanish and when your a 5th grader or a 6th grader you learn Latin. They have a smartboard in every room the same as my school, Hawkesdale College. Their school starts at Kindergarten and goes to 6th grade. Using a virtual classroom is a great way to communicate with other students from around the globe and is also great for learning about other countries and their culture. There is no better way to learn then to learn from another student.
This is a screen shot during our link-up. We were asked to draw our favourite item of technology.
