I’m becoming quite excited about this research project with my S-Team students which involved their creating a “virtual” European cultural immersion experience. So far we have created a Wiki on Wikispaces, built a Ning, and begun to establish international contacts. I’ve discovered, through Epals, tremendous global education resources and made a new Lithuanian friend who has already taught me a lot and reinforced my belief in the kindness of people throughout the world. Tomorrow I try Skyping to Switzerland!

So much to learn—together.

  5. Hi hello DS,
    and welcome to WordPress! :))
    The site looks great! Jee, the day should have 48 hours to read and do everything… :((

    1. Thank you for the nice welcome. Though I get more sleep than you, I DO learn quickly especially when motivated by excellent teachers such as you. I look forward to our continuing to learn together—and my competing with your 5th graders!
      There is MUCH I can learn from your blog and the links you have shared with me.

      1. Have a look at this one: You can choose any region in Lithuania there…

      2. Stunning! Thanks for sharing. D. David D. Simpson, Ph. D. Professor of Psychology Carroll University (USA)
