Media: where we run the projects
Some projects take place in Kidspace: an on-line environment that allows teachers and students to collaborate in global projects by providing a wide range of easy-to-use features and functions.
KidSpace makes it easy for students and teachers to publish and share their global dialogue on the web by creating webpages which contain images, sounds, short animations, texts, and videos.
I Describe myself You Draw me (DD), Schools Around the World (SATW), Diamond Poema, What’s my Number, and some others take place in Kidspace pages and use FB groups for teachers communication.
Doves for Peace, Landmark Games run via email and on FB. They don’t use Kidspace, but teachers have to apply by Application Form and register to Kidlink. Suggested and welcome to make a school presentation in Kidspace page of the project.
You can read the rules to participate in each project home page.
