'The primary role of teaching staff was to facilitate a ‘virtual’ student fieldtrip to the highlands of Western Ethiopia, simulating the fieldwork element of a joint 2nd and 3rd year module entitled ‘Africa: Diversity and Development’.'

I love this idea! I am a teacher with @KOOL a virtual schol in Kamloops, BC, Canada.

What I liked most about your project was the way you tried to get your students to really "feel" like they were heading to Ethiopia. I work with Elementary students, but your ideas have given me limitless ideas on smaller projects. We could even work on how to "get to" the principal's office or playground.

Thank you!

I clicked on your site because I was born in New Zealand and I am always curious about kiwis....

I agree this does sound really exciting - a great way for the technologies to genuinely enhanced/enrich the student experience.
