Scarlett McLean recently visited the Australian Embassy in Seoul to discuss the progress of the project. She was able to give a run down on the work she had been engaged in during a visit to Korea including meetings with the teachers from the project and visiting a number of their classrooms to deliver a lesson on Australian language. We wish to once again formally acknowledge the support of the Australia Korea Foundation in supporting this project.
Be sure to follow the Case Study Menu link that is tracking a teacher new to the project so we can share some tips and pointers to successful collaboration.
Thankyou for Riley for being open to experiencing things from a newly involved teacher’s point of view. These are great lessons for us all as we head down the global collaboration pathway.
Teachers would you like to introduce sharing on the topic of Climate: Drought?
A powerpoint is now available for download, modification, or use.

In Korea there is not the shortage of water that we experience here. Use this powerpoint to introduce the idea of Australian weather, drought and how we deal with it.
Professor Ku continues to dedicate her time and energy to supporting the project at the Daegu end. We wish to acknowledge her tireless work and selfless attitude. She has
sustained the project through a difficult period last year with the support of Scarlett McLean from Mt. Clear College in Victoria. Here she is working in person with one of the schools linking this week.
Partnerships have kicked off strongly this year with some interesting first links. A number of Victorian schools are now using roving wireless microphones to improve the sound at the Korean end. Newly involved teachers have been reviewing their first experiences and building on these in preparation for upcoming collaborations.
Victorian schools with Polycom units are generally using this technology. Professor Ku has a new assistant this year who has been working hard to support links with her bi-lingual capacity. We deeply appreciate her work.
Here are some snap-shops of recent links:
