Getting to Know You

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

Children researched aspects of their school and local area to share with their partner school

Pupils were divided into six groups (A-F). They introduced themselves to their corresponding group through the forums. They also brainstormed possible group names. Pupils created pupil profiles using the wikis. Pupils collaborated in their groups to create Halloween Acrostic poems using the wikis. They continued discussions within their groups using the forums. Each group created a wiki page to provide information about their school. They had a video conference to introduce themselves. Throughout the year they shared information about their local area on the wiki and also used video conferencing to share information about their school and locality.


Our face-to-face meeting took place in Share Centre Enniskillen where students participated in team building activities and further developed relationships with our partner school.

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.
