7 Come, I want to show you my classroom!




11 Will Richardson quote on Learning is Now! What a great model for the immediacy of learning that can happen these days, and the relevance. When you think about all of the things that your students could learn and practice here, interviewing skills, geography and geology, information research, retrieval, editing, organization and sharing, all in the larger context of perhaps assisting those in need who were thousands of kilometers away. I want to make the point, however, that it's all grounded in your own understanding of these technologies and the ways in which they can help us connect. If you didn't have that knowledge and experience, this probably would not have happened, and that really is the goal of what we're all trying to do here, get more comfortable in using these technologies to learn in our own practice. Thanks so much for sharing this great snippet of learning from your classroom.


13 A linkup with a school in Russia

14 Across the World – Russian linkups

47 Hi Flick! Picture is very beautiful I think there are a lot of good day in Australia. How do you think of that? Recently, I always bring fold-up umbrella, because I often catch in a shower I will follow you example. I am going to try to study Korean more and more. Now many people are interested in Korean in Japan because there are a lot of beautiful actress and actor in Korean. Obachann who is 30-50 years Japanese women loves Korean actor. I have a favor to ask of you. Now I study English, but my English have a lot of mistakes. I want you to check my English and correct mistakes if you have time. Thanks, Ayaka

48 Your English is quite good for the majority of your writing but I have written it now as I would have. However, I was unable to complete your second paragraph because I could not understand what Obachann was. Could you please tell me? Chloe Hi Chloe! I appreciate your kindness. "Obachan" is women whose age are 30-50 and they have warm heart and great energy. Most of them love going to shopping, watching Korean dramas and having a chat in the street. Thanks, Ayaka

49 1) I think the important things for learning foreign language would be so we can communicate with other people or friends. i have some friends over in america and others in indonesia and austria, i have to stop and think before i can reply back because English is their second language. 2) My favoruite way of studying foreign languages would be actually talking with the other people. and playing games with them or listening to the music.
