Finding exchange partners
You need to find some contact schools to exchange ideas with before you start on a topic with a class.
Some teachers who have been involved year after year have built up regular contacts and this helps them to be more confident that they will have successful exchanges.
Members of the Science across the World team are helping teachers to explore new ways to exchange taking advantage of social networking sites and internet tools designed to aid collaboration.
- Your school may already have international contacts – such as those established for language learning.
- You can contact some enthusiasts by joining the Science across the World Facebook Group – so long as you have registered with the web site.
- You can make contacts with other schools through Factworld
- Schools in Europe can take part in eTwinning
- Use the English Language Teaching Contacts Scheme – ELTeCS
