Hello Everyone. I teach a Modern World History 1945 to the Present class at my school for 17 and 18 year-olds. In January and February they will be looking at the development of different regions of the world from the 1960s through to today. Specifically, they will be looking at Africa, Latin America, South Asia, China, and East Asia (Japan, Korea, etc) and we can also add the Middle East and Europe if there is interest.
As part of their project I would like them to interact with students or 'experts' from those other regions to get a different perspective on some of the people, events and ideas they will be looking at. We could certainly modify to also include American history and events during that time if your students are interested.
I would be willing to interact in many different ways. We could great our own Ning for the project, converse on Skype, exchange emails, videos and podcasts. Anything is possible. Let me know who is interested and hopefully we can get something going. I would like to begin the preliminary work with the students the second week in January 2010.
