….. Jung explained that her group was dedicated to connecting K-12 classrooms in order to promote “global collaborative learning by supporting educators and allowing them to engage in 21st century globalized learning, while assisting children in both developed and developing countries to share quality education together through an intercultural virtual exchange.”
Both Pinkerton (principal) and Constantinides (4th grade teacher), veteran educators, described the program as being exceptional. “Talk about global learning! What a great way to conclude your ‘senior’ year in elementary school” said Pinkerton.
Constantinedes agreed: “My kids haven’t been as excited all year as they are tonight. Interacting with others their own age half way around the world about topics ranging from music, habits, art and hobbies to American and Korea historical heroes is something they will always remember.”
Nine-year-old Megan Young and Jonathan Schanil enjoyed the moment. “ This is totally cool.” Said Megan while Jonathan added, “My dad never had anything like this when he attended this school.”
