“Knowing me, Knowing You!” Folk Tales from Britain and Nepal Healthy Living
An Intercultural awareness project involving Key Stage 2 pupils from two very different schools in the south of Kent. Dymchurch Primary has mostly white and British pupls, in contrast the pupils at Guston Primary 26km away where the pupils are mostly the sons and daughters of Nepalese service men and women from a nearby army barracks. Most speak very little or no English when they arrive in the United Kingdom.
The project was an opportunity for pupils from Dymchurch and Guston to use ICT to share information about themselves and their different cultures. Funded by the SEGFL and supported by the Kent “Hands on Support” programme pupils from both schools used ICT to:
• Regularly web conference
• Create multimedia presentations
• Publish video and audio files
• Send messages
• Comment on each others work
To support the project both schools received six ASUS minibooks provided as an evaluation exercise by the SEGFL.
