Cambridge English Pen friends
Today, with new and emerging communication technologies and increased globalization, cultural exchange programs may rely entirely on online interaction. These developments also mean that exchanges may involve any number of school communities and are easily sustainable as regular or ongoing events.
Children from over 40 countries who are learning English have linked up with one another thanks to a new pen friend scheme for schools developed by a department of Cambridge University.
Students at Maharaja Agarsain Public School, A Cambridge International School, Under the guidance of Ms. Jharna Anand and Ms. Nidhi Jain searched for partner schools based on the age of the students, their English ability, location and size of the schools and exchanged cards digitally. Our first partnership was with Okullari Antalya, Turkey on the theme “ UNIVERSAL VALUES” .
In the Continuation of this international collaboration started in the month of March 2017 , we have moved further to set new benchmarks. we are in contact with following countries:-
Name of the school
Frolovo Secondary Magnet School
Final Okullari Antalya
Colegio mayor Tobalabo
Exuela Pablo Neruda
It's an invaluable experience that will hopefully equip our children with the ability to make new friends for a lifetime, for all the above efforts we received various “Digital Badges”.
