Aliens, Plenty of Places and Limerick Writing

Age: 8,9,10
Project Year: 2010-11

Students covered a number of topics collaboratively

The students got to know each other by creating personal profiles on the wiki's and sending messages in the forums. We took part in three projects this year: Aliens, Plenty of Places and Limerick Writing

Aliens: Pupils painted aliens and wrote descriptions based on these pictures. These descriptions then exchanged and pupils then took the partner school's descriptions and painted a picture based on this. Wikis were used to exchange information between our partner school and ourselves.

Plenty of places: The children researched places of interest in their area and presented the information in the forum and during a video conferencing session.

Limericks: children wrote limericks about places they know half of the limerick was posted on the wiki and the partner school then finished it.

Face-to-Face

The children had their face-to-face meeting at Causey Farm, Co. Meath. The students enjoyed meeting their partner school and getting to see the animals.

Media Gallery

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.
