Hi,

I would like to know how exchange program is operated at global visits.

I am interested in making bridges between students who have different cultural backgrounds for fostering mutual understanding.

That is why I joined this community. I would like to learn from you. Thanks.

HJ

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is: www.twitter.com/rosselmulaire

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

Global Visits has had several projects linking US university students with students from Afghanistan, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa. I am giving a presentation at an international conference this fall how these types of projects via a social utility can help colleges with small budgets internationalize their curriculum. I would to hear from those of you teaching at the university or college level who have used such internet driven interactive tools in your classroom. What projects did you engage in? And with with students from where? What problems did you encounter.....our biggest problems were always connected with access to technology and high speed Internet.....not a problem for the US, but a huge problem for people living in developing countries. HOw did the students respond? Please join me in this discussion.

Hi there,
You are sincerely invited to join Knowledge Building Summer Institute 2010, in which there will be an international knowledge building programme called Tomorrow's Innovators (TI) (Pls refer to http://ikit.org/SummerInstitute2010/) in which students around the world will have inquiry based learning together.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Cheers,
