I created a blog. It contains three questions. One is for your students to write about what they know about the USA. One is for my students to write about what they know about New Zealand. The third is for both to write about something interesting about their country. It's a start! I set the blog parameters to allow anyone to post, so your students should not have a problem. The blog is on my website. You can go through the school website as I stated in a previous e-mail or you can go directly to my site at: http://mysite.verizon.net/tteehan/index.htm
Let me know if you experience any problems. I will look again at your blog and see if my students can post anything there.
Tim Teehan"So, Mr Teehan has been really proactive in using ICTs to help globalise his students. Will you respond intelligently? Please do - remember your good Kiwi manners, keep to the topic, use correct grammar, spelling, etc and see what you can learn and what you can share. If this is successful we will try to set up a skype session with his class too.
