Mrs. Brenda Turnen’s 3rd Grade class at Palm Valley Elementary participated in the 2014 Global Virtual Classroom Web Design Contest.
This contest provides students with an opportunity to develop skills that are essential in the 21st century; cross-cultural communication, collaboration, information technology and web design.
The students used Edmodo to communicate with their partner school in India to develop a website on Toys and Games.
The students researched, shared information and designed their pages online.
This was a wonderful collaboration and great way to teach the students about how truly small our global world can be.
Please see the website below for the Toys and Games website with pictures of our PVE students communicating with their partner school in India.
