Subject: [NIFL-AALPD:2258] International Classroom Virtual Visit:
2005-2006

Dear Colleague,

The International Classroom and School Virtual Visit project is  
beginning its seventh year, linking classrooms across the world to  
enable students to meet each other virtually, share information about  
their cultures, their classrooms, and their communities, and to build  
cultural understanding. Classes can include English as a Second or  
Other Language (ESOL/ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE, GED),   
elementary or secondary education, or family literacy.  Students can  
be from age seven to adult.

As in past years, we hope classes will share student-to-student  
questions and answers, and possibly choose a film, book or current  
event which the partner classes can discuss. This year we also hope  
some sites will use blogs, wikis, free Internet telephony and m- 
learning (using mobile phones to access Web pages).

If you would like to participate in this year's project,

1. Sign up on the I.C.V.V. e-list  by going to:

       http://lists.literacytent.org/mailman/listinfo/icvv

       Scroll down the page to choose an ID and password.  That's it,  
easy and free.

2. Once you receive confirmation that you are on the I.C.V.V. e-list,  
send an e-mail to:

         icvv@lists.literacytent.org

indicating your interest in participating this year.  Be sure to  
describe your class, when it starts, and what age group or  
nationality, if any, you would prefer to partner with.

If you would like to look at classroom visit projects from previous  
years go to:

       http://www.otan.us/webfarm/emailproject/school.htm

and then choose

     http://www.otan.us/webfarm/emailproject/school2003.htm

We look forward to your joining the project.  Let one of us know if  
you have questions.

All the best,
