The International Association of School Librarianship (ISLM) offers ideas for taking your classroom global. An interesting one we just got word of, among several projects for International School Library Month, is ISLM's Skype Project. From their website:
For the first time in 2011 the ISLM Committee offer schools the opportunity to make contact with each other using Skype. If you would like your students to take part in this exciting new project please complete this survey by Wednesday 28th September, 2011.
In early October you will receive an email with a list of schools who wish to participate. It will then be up to you to make contact with the schools of your choice to make arrangements for your ISLM Skype sessions throughout the month of October.
To find out more about how to use Skype and for a free download go to the Skype website.
Create an ISLM 2011 Skype Project session log (click on the link to download the form) and send to Marie O'Brien. A list of participating schools will be posted to celebrate the culmination of the project.
