Yes we are skyping the world again on Dec 6th 2013. Mrs Brunswick’s class will host the skype. We are talking about neighbours and the question we are wondering about is, “Do we need neighbours?” we are also thinking on a global level and are wondering who are your neighbours to your country? As an added bonus because this #SAW24 (Skype around the world in 24 hours) is in Dec we’ll also be sharing some of our celebration traditions we have in Australia. We’d love to hear what you celebrate also in your country and perhaps some traditinal ways you celebrate events important in your country.
We make a roster up so we skype you in your school day. We get to wake over at school skyping all the time zones around the world. Luckily the next day for us is saturday.
We also create a wiki to support #SAW24 with instructions for the skype session, a page for your school to add information, images, video etc, some ideas for learning from the skype, a data page so we can compare our school and country to yours and of course a shared map so you can place your pin on the map and we can see where you are on our wonderful planet.
Here is our wiki from our earlier skype around the world in 2013 if you have a look you will see how it works.
We welcome all classes up to year 10 to join us in our 24 hour skype and hope you will fill in the form below and join our #saw24. We will email you access to the wiki in the coming weeks so you can begin to add to your page so keep checking your emails. Make sure you scroll down on the form to fill in your details so we can contact you.
Thank you and we look forward to learning with you during our 24 hour skype.
