Background

The initial aim was for the teacher to engage her geography class in a real world problem by connecting with children in another country experiencing the effects of EI first hand. This was to bring this climate change issue to life, rather than reading about it in a textbook. 

This case study presents a cross country (intercultural) experiment in using technology to communicate between children to gather data from their respective local communities, to enable the ‘voices’ of those at a local level to be heard and for the children to understand the impact.  

Background

The lead-school is in a large urban city, with high rates of poverty and geographical movement of families and children, with newly arrived citizens seeking asylum alongside other migration and movement patterns. The city has a long tradition of being multicultural with an ethic majority and the school has 68 languages spoken. This means that there are many EAL (English as an additional language) pupils and many are entitled to free school meals.
