Setting Up International Links

Discussion in 'US – Staffroom' started by danbham, Oct 17, 2016.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking to set up some purposeful links so that students can collaborate and communicate between our college here in Birmingham, England, and others around the world.

    In the past, I've run Skype sessions with a school in Jacksonville on the business of global sports and ethics in business. I'm looking at doing more projects like this, would anybody be interested in discussing this further?

    I used to co-ordinate Birmingham/Chicago links for a group of schools in Birmingham.
    To be honest a lot of the contacts I had in Chicago high schools have moved on. However I know that Birmingham Council are very keen to re-establish some links. The guy to speak to at the Council is Mike Murray or his assistant Heather Law.
    The last thing I tied to set up was a literature link between two schools. I had sponsorship and everything but was let down suddenly by the teacher over here and the sponsor pulled out.

    Mike and Heather may have suggestions for contacts in other countries as well

    Sorry for taking almost two years to reply! I promise I am much more organised now and willing to set up international links again. Would you still be interested in working together?

    Please email me at dpardoe@jcc.ac.uk if you'd like to talk more about this.

    Thanks for your patience :)

    Kind Regards,

    Sorry for taking literally years to respond to this. I'll take your advice and see if those two people are still responsible for setting up links.


    Kind Regards,
