Using learning technologies for school links projects

In this module I really learned something that never thought we could do in our country, though it is normal for us to speak with people from other countries I never thought of working with another school abroad. Such interaction with other school or country could help approach the unit being studied in a more real way, we can focus on the mail objective without explaining too much of something they students might not need to focus on at the moment (depending on the program something focusing on vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation etc might be not really the main goal of our class). So I think this link project can help us have our students more motivated, make them actually produce the content of the object they are working on, be critical, acquire responsibility since they will be working with someone abroad, and have an interaction with a foreigner.
To carry this in my school I think the best technology to be used with links projects is facebook, email, and depending on the ability and interest of students use skype. And I would probably try it first with the older kids, that’s 6th grade.
