Linking Classrooms Across the Globe

As Malaysia steers ahead steadily with its Education Blueprint with the great hope that our students will be equipped with 21st century skills, I think it is equally important to make our students cognizant of the different cultures of the world. Students are no longer confined to the 4 walls of their classrooms with the advent of technology and listed below are some websites that you can explore to bring the world to your classroom. Just click on the pictures to be taken to the websites.

  1. There are more than 100 active global projects on this website. Some of the topics covered in previous projects include kites around the world and volunteer work.
