Title : Creating an Intercultural Collaboration for Students Using Online Tools
Type : Workshop (60 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Technology enables teachers to connect their students to peers in other countries for intercultural collaborations. This presentation will demonstrate how the author created a website for conducting an intercultural collaboration between Japanese and American university students and how attendees can follow his example. The presentation will begin by explaining the exchange which has been conducted between Japanese and American university students. Attendees will learn what issues have arisen in the collaboration’s 7-year history and they will create a wiki site on which they can use to host a collaboration of their own. The presenter will provide step-by-step instructions on how to set up the online exchange using a wiki page as an example, with comments about the pros and cons of other platforms which can be used, such as social media, blogs, etc. Attendees will also as learn where to find safe, reliable partners for their students’ interactions in an educational setting. Finally, examples of the presenter’s collaborations and the students’ exchanges will be provided so that attendees can see how rich the exchanges can be. Attendees will be prepared to begin online intercultural collaborations with their students. This workshop is updated from one presented at JALTCALL2015 conference.
