Here is an opportunity for you and your students to connect, learn , communicate and collaborate with students on a global level.
The International Art Miles Project is a fabulous project that is funded through the Ministry of Education in Japan. When you apply for this project, you will be paired with a classroom in Japan to learn about an aspect of each other’s culture, community and country. Through interactions in a password protected forum space, the students communicate with each other while planning the creation of a 12X 5 foot mural. Half of the mural is painted by the students in Japan and half is painted by your students. All of the materials are supplied however, the only cost to your school is shipping the mural back to Japan.
If you are interested in joining this project, please complete the project application by following this link:
