To share favourite stories and authors and collaboratively produce a book of short stories.

Pupils created their profiles in the wiki and then initial contact was made through the forums. Pupils shared their favourite stories and authors through the forums. They worked collaboratively to write fantasy stories in the wiki. The wiki stories were then used to produce a book of short stories.
Images of each school were exchanged through the Gallery and school news was exchanged via a weekly blog post.

Videoconferencing:
Videoconferencing took place between the schools on a regular basis, but there were problems with the sound and the picture sometimes froze.

Face to face meeting:
Our face-to-face meeting to took place at the Share Centre in Lisnaskea. The groups from each school worked together on a variety of team building activities.

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!
