GUERILLA EDUCATORS IS DEDICATED TO REALTIME EDUCATIONAL BEST PRACTICES IN ACTION. WE ARE A GLOBAL LEADER IN THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF EFFECTIVE PROJECT BASED LEARNING ON THE FRONTLINES IN AND OUT OF CLASSROOMS. WE ALSO CONNECT EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES PLANNERS WITH THE TEACHERS/LEARNERS WHO USE THOSE SPACES.
For much of the 2012-'13 school year, 7th grade students from the Chinese International School in Hong Kong and their US counterparts at East Norriton Middle School (ENMS), in suburban Philadelphia have been in regular communication with each other. What began as a simple penpal arrangement between the students ("My name is..., I go to..., I like to eat,,,, etc) has become so much more. Educators at the schools from both Hong Kong and East Norriton have collaborated electronically throughout the Project to include curricular objectives, local customs and holidays, and the increasing use of technology applications. In April, students from ENMS filmed and edited their first video for their Hong Kong "TechPals", "A Day in the Life" at their school, here:
Their Hong Kong friends just sent a return video, their first, back to the ENMS students, here:
This Project has been a wonderful experience for both the students, teachers, and the entire school families at both schools. The hope is that it will continue into the 2013-'14 school year.
