    Kansas City-Kyiv Skype Conference

    Kansas City-Kyiv Skype Session II finished an hour ago. 

    (Why II? Because there was Kansas-Kyiv Skype Session I in December2011.)
    Summarizing their collaborative work at the international WikiTV project the students from Troyeshchyna Gymnasium, Kyiv, Ukraine, 
    and the students from Notre Dame de Sion High School, Kansas City, Missoury, the USA started the Skype session at 4.p.m. Ukrainian time, 
    8.a.m Kansas City time on 11 May 2012. 
    And the session lasted 55 minutes, 10 minutes longer than it had been planned
    because the students wanted to ask more and more questions.
    And what was the beginning like? The chair in the photo  is waiting for the first presenter, but  there is a problem: 
    we cannot see the American students, though they can see us.
    Soon the American teacher Lesa Childers repaired the video connection and our students  were rewarded with an open dialogue with the American students. Here are some of the topics the American students asked about: what careers our students would like to pursue, favourite food, summer plans, final exams, dating, partying, professional sport, prejudice etc.
    I am sure that my students will come back to the Gymnasium on Monday with bright impressions after the session
    having got the answers to their questions about different aspects of  life in the American school, about special places in Kansas City, 
    new technologies and projects in education, foreign languages as a means of communication, etc.
    And I expect them to write about their feelings in the comments.
    On Monday we are also  waiting for the video recording of the Skype session.
    In the photo below you can see the moment when our students are waiting for 1 minute while the American students are discussing the possible answer to one of the questions
     (That was a must for each  team to discuss the answer first)
    Katya in the photo  is waiting for the answer to her question  and Nikita (on the right) is waiting for the moment to continue taking the video.
    Thank you very much to our American partners from Notre Dame de Sion High  School,
    to the students  and their teacher Lesa Childers, for collaboration and  
    for this unique opportunity to communicate through the Skype.

    Isn't it amazing that it's so easy to communicate in our modern world.
    As a result, the Earth looks so small.
    I hope we will continue collaborating with the American students next year.
