It was fun to talk to people who we thought were completely different and find how similar they are to us. All kids have fun and learn stuff!

I thought it might be difficult to talk to them because of cultural difference and background but it wasn’t.

I think it’s great that we (Australians) can talk to people in India. I find it even better that it’s led by children, because it can help us with our inquiry. It’s a good idea that we can interact with children of a different culture and find out about them in this way.

It was great in the sense that we can share our learning all over the world and it’s not limited just to the classroom.

It was amazing.. I thought all Sri Lankans had a hard life and Jude’s life is so good.

When you look it up on the internet, it could be written by anyone who hasn’t even lived in the place.

It gets more into me when someone tells me than if I was just reading it.

The thought of seeing children from so far away in their own room was exciting, and intimidating all at once. But they caught on to the idea that they could find out about each other using this medium:  text on skype, translations from and into English, from and into Marathi and Hindi. And I was inundated with queries to send to them even after the session was over. But what really struck me, yet again, was the vast potential for understanding different perspectives and situations.
