Lousã and EL Toboso get together through video conferencing

On May 16th students and teachers of the Portuguese school Escola Básica nº2 da Lousã and of the Spanish School C.P. Miguel de Cervantes - EL TOBOSO had the opportunity to get in touch by videoconferencing . During the session, we haven’t just talked, but we had a music time, according to the suggestion of teacher María Jesús. The Portuguese students sang “Saias raianas” ( a traditional song from Alentejo), with the help of our Music teacher Maria Otília, and we also listened to our Spanish friends singing in their mother tongue. Then our colleagues from class D, who are learning Spanish read a poem in Spanish, the poem is called “April and Silence”, by the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer, Nobel Prize in Literature 2011. We have chosen this poem because it is about spring. In our opinion, this event was very interesting, not only because we could talk in English and Spanish, but also because we had the opportunity to meet our colleagues in the project “Children and Reporters” and we found out that we have similar interests and hobbies, mainly the ones related to football. We hope we can have more opportunities like this one. Thanks to the teachers for making it possible. Pedro Tomás, Class C, 7th grade, EB nº2 da Lousã (Portugal)

Hi Ania, we have just used MSN and a webcam, Pedro Tomás brought 2 USB cables, so that we could install the webcam on top of the projector of the classroom, after installing it the clssroom looked like a mess and we had to change the furniture, so our rooms aren't also prepared for these kind of activities, but with the help of the students we managed. Maybe you can try. Do you have a portable webcam?
