South Africa Videoconference 
South Africa 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: 

"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

We had three videoconferences with South Africa.  Two were with students and one was with an organization called Lovelife.  We discussed xenophobia, globalization, apartheid and our cultures with our peers in South Africa.  Lovelife, an organization dedicated to HIV/AIDS prevention among young people, presented their goals to us.  For more information on Lovelife, please visit:

"Who ever knew that South Africa was so diverse?  I personally had no idea.  Talking with students from South Africa made me realize how much alike we are.  We also spoke about the high unemployment rate in South Africa (around 40%) and about the HIV/AIDS crisis and its effects on the people."  -Irina
