Tool #7: Reaching Outside your Classroom: Online Digital Projects

  1. Content objective - To understand that certain terms are exclusive to a culture.
  2. When you plan to implement - at the beginning of next school year.
  3. What tool(s) you plan to use - Skype
  4. A brief description of the project (plan - two or three sentences) - Students will be assigned to act as a culture of a given country and use terminology specific to that culture while skyping with another class. The other class should try to determine what the terminology means using context clues or hints from the other class. Ideally students will understand that certain cultures use terminology that may be completely unfamiliar to other cultures around them even if they speak the same language.
  5. If you need to find another classroom - We will Skype with the other Social Studies classroom.
