Age: 13,14
Project Year: 2010-11

An exploration of the school environment and To encourage students to discuss national politics, as they view them, as a teenager living in Northern ireland and Southern Ireland.

The project aims to encourage students to discuss national politics, as they view them, as a teenager living in Northern ireland and Southern Ireland. Students initiated the link by setting up the moodle groups and commenting on the forums. They also uploaded personal profiles to their wiki page telling each of their partners all about themselves. The class then researched and compliled information about their schools. They discussed aspects of school life such as the extra curricular activities, the rules and the uniforms they then went on to discuss national politics.
