Project ID - TIS001239
CLOSER (Collaborative Learning Online for Shared Education & Reconciliation). Students will be in schools that are working together in shared education and are exploring how online contact can extend the face to face work that is taking place. Most teachers have been trained in communication software ( Fronter and Collaborate) and will hope that students can provide general help in terms of developing the partnership between the schools.
