    15. 16. Ally’s blog
    16. 17. <ul><li>I introduced myself first and they proceeded on asking me questions, a lot of questions. I did my best to answer all of them like what sports we play, how cold it is here, what we do on weekends, what our schools are like, what are homes are like, and many other things. We had a lot of fun talking with each other and I LOVE their accent. We ended up talking for an hour. I told them that I wanted to eventually go to Australia and they couldn’t figure out why. They also asked me about what it was like in university and why it was fun. I told them, and asked them if they were planning on going to university and they all said no which was very surprising to me. They said the nearest university was too far away..3 hours. I found this kind of funny because i know alot of people who live farther then that away from home. I live 2 1/2 hours away, but I guess their culture and stuff is just different. Anyways I found this experience so much fun and very interesting, it is so much different there than here, if you ever get the chance to do something like this, i believe you should definately do it. </li></ul>

    43. 46. <ul><li>There are plenty of illegal immigrants in australia and each day many are sent home. illegal immigrants tend to have a non valid visa. some people who come here dont have a visa at all. Illegal immigrants come from all over the world. what happens to all of the illegal immigrants once they have been found out is they get relocated back to the country they came from. </li></ul>
    44. 47. <ul><li>Melissa // Oct 18th 2008 at 2:30 pm </li></ul><ul><li>That is what happens here in the United States as well. Visas are really a big part of it because visas take a long time to get, and then people just come illegally. Where are the illegal immigrants that come to Australia from? </li></ul><ul><li>Juliet Pham // Oct 18th 2008 at 5:21 pm </li></ul><ul><li>How do you feel about the fact that the illegal immigrants are relocated? Do you believe that it’s fair? I don’t think that it is. I really think that it would depend on the reason. Are the immigrants doing any harm really? That’s pretty interesting that Australia does have illegal immigrants because I never thought a place like Australia would because of the fact that it doesn’t have any countries near it or any land bridges. </li></ul><ul><li>Travis Bugge // Oct 18th 2008 at 5:21 pm </li></ul><ul><li>how do they get there? are they snuck on a plane or something? fur us, its pretty much peole crossing the border, or swimming over here. which part of austrailia do they go to? </li></ul>

    50. 53. Speaking directly with earthquake victims 12 hours after the occurrrence using skype
    51. 54. Will Richardson quote on Learning is Now! <ul><li>What a great model for the immediacy of learning that can happen these days, and the relevance. When you think about all of the things that your students could learn and practice here, interviewing skills, geography and geology, information research, retrieval, editing, organization and sharing, all in the larger context of perhaps assisting those in need who were thousands of kilometers away. I want to make the point, however, that it's all grounded in your own understanding of these technologies and the ways in which they can help us connect. If you didn't have that knowledge and experience, this probably would not have happened, and that really is the goal of what we're all trying to do here, get more comfortable in using these technologies to learn in our own practice. Thanks so much for sharing this great snippet of learning from your classroom. </li></ul>
