New collaborative starts February 2016 - NEW theme 'Climate Change' - Join Now
Connect with China Collaborative is interdisciplinary and cross-curricular learning for students, teachers and community members. The aim is to connect learners and community groups from within China to those outside of China. Each collaborative has a thematic approach and is digitally infused so that connections and collaborations are made virtually in both synchronous and asynchronous modes.
Join other learners within and beyond China to:
NEW concept for Feb-June 2016 - 'Climate Change'. Participants explore the idea ‘think global and act local’ and come up with initiatives that make positive contribution to their community.
- How is climate change impacting the world?
- What is my responsibility to understand and share this impact?
- How does my daily life affect climate change and how does this affect me?
- How can I collaborate with others in the world and impact change on this issue?

What people are saying.....
'The highlights however, were the Skype meetings our students enjoyed with kids in Australia. Some of our kids are struggling with English, but many of the Australian students are studying Chinese, so our learners had the opportunity to teach each other.' David Deeds, YWIES, Yantai, China.
'The immediacy of learning that mobile apps can provide was also clearly demonstrated. The WeChat app enabled us to get pictures and information immediately in class time. Students could work on their projects armed with the information that they required and satisfy their curiosity either through Edmodo or through my WeChat app.' Anne Mirtschin, Hawkesdale P12 College, Australia.
