ePals From Down Under
by Justin and Lillian
ePals is a website where you can communicate with other people in different countries by sending e-mails back and fourth. ePals is a very safe environment, and no other companies, except for ePals, can email each other. We are partnered with Mrs. Farlam’s class in Australia, it is really fun having the ePals. We also have ePals in Kenya, Africa but right know we are working on Port Lincoln, Australia.
Earlier this week, Justin and I were interviewing kids in our class. We were interviewing them to ask and learn what they learned about Australia. Then Justin and I picked which ones we liked best. After both of us chose which three we liked best. We would video tape them on the I Pod Touches and have them say what they learned.
Lilly and I were doing the video taping with the I-Pod touches or as Mrs. Fraher calls them I touches. It took lots of observation to see if they were doing anything distracting in the video. It was extra hard getting the right moment when it was quietest in the hall, and of course having everybody asking what are we doing? It was exciting to kind of be the teacher.
Here are the videos we came up with.
