The youngcast project: skype with Spanish and English Second Language students

What is the Youngcast project?

The "Youngcast Project" is a tandem exchange project between students of English and Spanish as a second language who communicate by using Web 2.0 tools and participate in several videoconferences with skype. The Spanish-speaking centers are located in Spain and Latin America and the English-speaking ones in United States and United Kingdom. The project is also opened to other schools wishing to communicate in English as a second language with Spanish students.  

 

The "Youngcast Project" is coordinated by iEARN-Pangea in Catalonia and has as one of the main objectives the exchange and cultural knowledge of participants as well as the use and development of a second language. 

 

Pairing schools

 

Each center works together with another one from the beginning of the project and they start collaborating on the different phases of the project which follow the Learning Circle structure approach:

  • Phase 1: Getting ready - teachers contact each other and get ready for the project.

  • Phase 2: Organizing the circle - first 'presentation' exchange.
  • Phase 3: Planning the circle - students plan the first exchange in little groups

  • Phase 4: Exchanging - videoconferences

  • Phase 5: Closing the circle - the last goodbye
