Talking Life with Taiwan
We are ready to share part two of the connection between Mrs. Winton's seventh graders and students from Taiwan. After Skyping to talk weather a few weeks ago, they continued their conversation via VoiceThread. Daylight Savings Time made it impossible to find another common time to talk live, and with so many unanswered questions, we felt it important to find another creative method of carrying on the conversation. VoiceThread to the rescue! We began a VoiceThread with our students asking a specific question. The students in Taiwan answered our questions by inserting their own comments on each slide and also added new slides with their own questions. See our results below and check back to see the conversation continue!
