Things We Learned about Canada
What I learned from my students
My fourth grade students had a Skype talk with Prof. Juan Carlos Castro's pre-service art educators in Montreal, Canada studying at Concordia University. They gave a presentation on how they have used technology in art throughout their years at Dryden. Each student presented one slide and glowed in the polite applause of their audience in Canada (that was so sweet.) Then they lined up to answer questions and later ask questions. We all learned so much!
The students had written what they wanted to say for each slide and read it at the computer. What a great experience for our students. How often do you get to practice public speaking to an international audience in 4th grade? Immediately below is the transcript and below that is the slideshow.
