MenuComment on the projectEmail from Karen Eini, the Project Director of Friends and Flags
I have been reviewing World InfoZone and Linking Our World and I wanted to compliment your work. You and Marsha (Dream A Dream
) have done an excellent job of collaborating on the materials collected from students and teachers around the world. With your permission I would like to connect your work back to the Friends and Flags website.
Comment from Paul Cook, Educational Consultant, Yorkshire, UK
I enjoyed reading all the different perspectives of the children and can see how useful this site could be for schools everywhere!

The Linking Our World project provides an excellent vehicle to develop a global awareness of different cultures. It enables the participants to communicate on a global basis, and, whilst on this voyage of discovery to learn about each other, to develop their ability/capability of ICT use. It is also worth noting that involvement in such a project will help schools motivate pupils to fulfil the KS3 communication objective of National Curriculum in ICT.

Extract from an email from a pupil and parent from Ein Ganim School
I like this project very much because it's fun to correspond with people around the world, to learn about different countries and different cultures and to meet new friends. ... I like to tell children about me, about our holidays and our country and I like to learn about them, about their holidays and their country.
Hi, I'm N's mom, I want to thank you and Marsha for this project. ... This project is very educational and I hope that my child will continue to correspond with the children from all over the world.

Hi! Iím glad to know that my daughter and her classmates have been communicating with your pupils over the internet. I share the happiness that it brings to the children. I think that the understanding must strengthen each other.

One of the key projects run on the World InfoZone site is Linking Our World which encourages school children from around the world to communicate with each other. The project started when Ein Ganim teamed up with the WIZ Linking the World project. They were soon involved with partner schools around the globe. The schools are now signing up to a Tolerance Pledge.
