VIRTUAL GUEST PROJECT
If you are interested in international collaboration and cross-cultural communication, the Virtual Guest Project (VGP) could be a simple and effective first step towards more ambitious projects. VGP makes possible collaboration among educational institutions from different countries around the world by using online communication tools. The procedure is simple, you invite a guest speaker (a colleague) from a different country to address your class. For more details on the procedure and the benefits of this activity, please see the link below.
The most important thing is to build a large network of speakers. If you are interested and wish to join the VGP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
