The forum thread for this is still open: project/forum/topic/for-all-members-project-topics/ o TEIs, once the schools have decided on the project themes / topics, please have them post it in the same forum thread: project/forum/topic/for-all-members-project-topics/ o As mentioned in our recent online meeting, we mentioned that we would like a school to pick "weather" as its project theme / topic, as it is something that anybody can talk about. Also, talking about the weather means talking about a lot of other things - food, culture and tradition, clothes, leisure activities; it is an excellent starting point for conversation among the participants. Please let us know if your school/s would like to work on this topic by posting on the same forum thread: : project/forum/topic/for-all-members-project-topics/3. Other Concernsa.

  4. 4. much welcome; please post them in the "How to Improve Interaction among KISPparticipants" forum thread: Introduction through Digital Stories - if you will refer to the instructions we provided onhow to proceed with the digital story activity, we wanted the participants to form smallgroups (4-5 members) so they could have more time for individual introduction in thevideo. We have noticed that several schools decided to prepare a digital story for theentire class; as a result, many of the students were unable to introduce themselvesindividually. Thus we would like to ask you to have the KISP participants post an entryin the self-introduction forum: participants can also leave a "Hi" or a "welcome"comment to acknowledge their entries in the forum thread.If you have other ideas on how to facilitate introduction and "breaking the ice" amongthe participants, please let us know and post on the "Improving interaction among KISPparticipants" forum thread: next online meeting - we are due for an online meeting next week; please expect usto ask for your available schedule on Monday (2 April)Thanks!Ave
