Abstract

This paper describes a current and ongoing effort to increase global awareness by providing a unique use of Internet2 and video for English instruction, professional development for teachers, cultural exchanges, and use of technology between schools in Taipei, Taiwan and schools in Missouri. Through the use of Internet2 and video, students from both cultures benefit from the opportunity to improve their English language (written and verbal) skills as well as identifying the benefits and limitations of online communications. The paper describes the goals of a 3-part model that is unique and also describes the current school partnership projects and benefits.
