Connecting classrooms around the world

Every school in the UK will get a chance to link up with children in a partner school in a developing country, such as the young boys pictured here in a school in Chennai, India, thanks to a new scheme to share experience, knowledge and skills between pupils and teachers across the globe.

 

The Connecting Classrooms scheme draws on the latest technology to help students interact internationally and learn more about the world around them.

 

Web-conferencing, online discussion forums and mobile phone apps will be used in the new three year project funded by UK aid and the British Council.
