Does anyone know if there is a way to somehow get students from other countries (I am in the US) to interact with my students? For instance, if we are doing a unit on Volcanoes, is there a way to contact students using Moodle near Mt. Etna or on Iceland? I would like my students to be able to ask questions first hand from kids who live near things we are studying.
I am not sure about how to use your Moodle to penpal but, if you study Japan then I can recommend
And on the language forums the following exchange sites have been recommended
eTom by Moodlers Gary Hursh and Gary Cziko using a moodle installation
Since a lot of places are keen to learn English you may find that others may wish to talk about the environment in which they live for language practice.
You can also ask at
The Exchange (a course here at Moodle.org)
In the longer term it may be possible to interconnect moodles in a P2P network formation. Martin Langhoff and team are working towards this now. I think if Moodles could interconnet with each other p2p then it would be a cool way of allowing students in different countries to interact.
Hey tracey !
My name´s avryl, i am 14 years old i live in México city, i am a student and i really don´t know if i can help you but i´ll do my best ok? near where i live there´s a volcanoe it´s called the popocatepelt and you know , for being sincere it doesn´t make anything interesting , sometimes it throws out like a white cloud but nothing else haha Well i think that´s all i can do for you and something else , can you write me back just to see if my writing is good i mean i speak spanish but i am trying to improve my english ok?
I suggest you try sharedtalk.com or the other links that Timothy provided. Unfortunately, this site is not for email exchange, but technical help for teachers who use Moodle.
As the Moodle community grows I certainly see this as an exciting and worthwhile opportunity.
