We understand no machine translation is perfect.

The goal of this program is to build a bridge of communication between classrooms in countries and regions of the world, some of whom do not have frequent access to the Internet. The GVC Clubhouse will be open year-round for maximum flexibility. This may be of particular interest to schools in the southern hemisphere.

Requirements
Any K-12 teacher-led group that has access to the Internet may apply. The group need not be all members of the same class, but it must be supervised by a teacher or other responsible adult, who will monitor contributions and messages. Students do not need an email address to participate in the Clubhouse Wiki. Groups may choose projects in which to participate or they may connect directly with other Clubhouse schools for a school to school project.

GVC Clubhouse is perfect for:

  • Teachers interested in fostering cultural exchange.
  • Teachers and classes with imagination and energy, but with little free time or limited Internet access.
  • Teachers and classes that want to learn how to use some basic Internet tools.
  • Foreign language classes who want to practice reading and writing with native speakers.

Students can work on collaborative projects, learn to create Websites, experiment with multimedia, or simply participate in discussions. Design and carry out international surveys and analyze the results. Do scientific or historical research with partner schools. Exchange artwork, poetry, stories or essays. Teach each other about your culture, festivals and communities.
