Students at the Y.A.L.E. School Medford campus are sharing video diaries with typical peers at an international school in China!
Tying together Social Studies, English, and technology, the project uses an iPad app to let the students record videos introducing themselves to their counterparts on the other side of the globe. The videos are then uploaded to a class blog where they can be viewed.
The students at the school in China will follow suit, recording their own videos and uploading them for the Y.A.L.E. students to watch.
This represents a unique opportunity for our students to sharpen their social skills, since the students at the international school in China are from all over the world, with diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences.
Check back for more videos and photos of the project soon!
