We at De Pedagogics hosted the ‘Skype Around the World Day’ on April 17 from 8:30 a.m. noon to 9:00 a.m. IST. The hosts of the event Todd Flory’s class were located in the Kansas, U.S. (central time zone, GMT-5). The event was for the students of grade 4 from various countries and continents. The students were super excited and put in great effort in collecting data on country’s(India)/region’s(Gurgaon, Haryana) geography, economy, and culture that they then shared with the students in the United States.
It was fantastic to see how curious they were to know about each other. Some interesting snippets from the conversation:
India: Do you have king and queen in your country?
US: No we have a President
US: How many children do you have in your school?
Those were some moments to cherish for long and great learning experience for the students. Thank you Todd Flory, Jenna Sprague and all their students for having us as their guests.
A special mention for the great efforts put forward by the students of class 4 of Delhi Public school Sushant Lok, Gurgaon. We look forward to hosting many more such events to bring learning closer to the learner and making learning fun, engaging, relevant and challenging.
