Year Six are excited to begin a cross-cultural connection with a Korean school next term. Teacher, Emma Smith had an initial video introduction to the Korean teacher from Nyongso Elementary School. Together they scheduled in 8 video link-up lessons and chose suitable topics that would educate both sides about their country, landmarks, sports, school environment, pop culture and special cultural celebrations. This intercultural education experience has been facilitated by Heidi Shvetsoff and Dr Myung-sook Auh, Program Director of the Asia ConneXions and Senior Lecturer, University of New England.
The Asia ConneXions Program supports the Cross Curriculum Priority of ‘Asia and Australia’s Engagement with Asia’.
