One of the things that I do is help coordinate a global collaborative learning project run by the Israeli Ministry of Education. The project which teams Israeli High School classes with classes abroad will be going into its fifth year next year. This year we teamed 24 classes from 17 Israeli school with classes from 12 countries around the world. We are beginning to look for high school classes who would like to work with an Israeli class during the next school year.
The project is built around the two classes communicating with each other in English, studying each other's literature (or cinema) and culture and creating a web presence to house and showcase the collaborative process and outcomes. The project is described and illustrated on the project website: http://www.education.gov.il/ipncl
Recently, some of the participating schools have begun to use web2.0 applications to facilitate the collaboration (Skype, Moodle, wikis. YouTube & Google Videos,etc.)
One example of such a collaborative project can be seen here:
Sharon Peters of Lower Canada College (a Classroom2.0 member) made an Spresent presentation about her participation in this project (as well as many others) here:
Another presentatation between Israeli and Italian schools can be seen here:
Any high school teachers who might be interested in participating in this project next year please contact me for further information here or by email: email@example.com
