Guidelines to Participate

Background Information
Kidlink projects are cooperative projects.  Please do not join a project if you are unable to continue participating and communicating during the project.  When teachers do not participate, then the entire project is affected and is not as engaging and educational for the other teachers and students in the project.

During the project you should communicate regularly with your teacher partners and with the project coordinator in order to cooperate better, improve student’s dialogue, monitor how the project is progressing, and be up to date with the coordinator’s latest instructions.

Communication will take place as the project leader speciifies –  that may be Facebook groups, emails, Skype chat, etc.

About students’pages in Kidspace. (Kidspace is not used in all projects. Check with your project leader.)

If the teachers participating in a Kidspace project, do not activate their students pages and comments written on their pages, the dialogue dies. Not only, these youth learn that it has no sense to write comments in our pages, as they are not approved.

Check the emails with which you are registered, 

For this reason it is necessary that the emails with which teachers are registered, are operational and always controlledKeep checking your inbox  (spam folder too!) to watch if there are new comments or new students page to activate. Teachers that do not approve youth comments, will therefore be reminded by email about unapproved comments and if they still do not approve comments, they will have their pages inactivated.
