Project on solar energy, wind energy and geothermal

The two schools were split into 6 groups and given topics such as solar energy, wind energy, geothermal....... Each member of each group had to research the topic. Then each group was split further into 4 sub-groups. Each sub-group had an objective for a wiki page e.g. introduction, description....


Brunswick Moviebowl, Derry. The students met for the first time in person. They discussed their projects before enjoying themselves in mixed school teams of 10 pin bowling.

Video conferencing was difficult. The students did not communicate as well as expected. Being young teenagers, they were very reserved and didn't want to embarrass themselves in front of the class.

For Dissolving Boundaries Day 2014 we invited schools to send us short video recordings that show what DB means to them. We've pieced these together into a movie!

A documentary about linking schools through ICT; case studies of cross-border links between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the Dissolving Boundaries programme and in Israel through the TEC program.
