Virtual School Project linking schools in Canada, China, Korea and Philippines
Sunday, 18 March 2012
The KFIT International School Project (KISP) was initiated to provide teachers and students with an opportunity to expand their local boundaries and collaborate with other groups internationally in developing inter-cultural projects. The project connects schools from four countries (Canada, China, Korea, Philippines) to engage in project-based learning locally and internationally. The project was formally launched on 5 March 2012 at UNESCO Bangkok through an online meeting and video conference of all collaborating Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) and schools (teachers and students who will take part in KISP), held via Skype.
Three TEIs will guide participating schools and help induce collaboration among the schools. Eight teachers teaching grade 4 to 6 of eight schools will act as the core facilitators of the project. Throughout the implementation period, schools will make full use of the potential of ICTs - from the conceptualization of ideas, implementation and working with local and foreign schools (telecollaboration).
