India videoconference 
India videoconference 

We participated in these videoconferences through Global Nomads Group.  They collaborated with the project called Semester at Sea, which embarked on its 100th voyage from Sept. - Dec. 2009.  Live, open dialogue videoconferences were planned with each port city along their route.  We enjoyed being apart of this unique experience.  For more information on the Semester-At-Sea program, visit:  www.semesteratsea.org 

"The aim of this project is for youth participants to broaden their understanding of an increasing "flat world" in the 21st century though live, cross-cultural conversations on the manifold issues that relate to immigration and globalization."  -Semester-At-Sea Lesson Plan

India videoconference 

Our Indian peers were very excited, as were we, to have these two videoconferences.  We spoke about our schools, our cultures, our holidays, technology, outsourcing, Bollywood, and democracy.

The holiday Diwali, or Deepawali, took place around the time of our dialogue.  The Indian students made a poster for us to illustrate the themes of this holiday and explain its significance as a festival of lights.  We sent the students and their teacher an e-card to wish them a Happy Diwali!
