One of the best parts about working at Edublogs is seeing daily all of the amazing learning experiences of students through blogging.

We regularly try to share these examples on our Facebook and Twitter pages, but this one in particular seemed worthy of a bit more.

Six teachers, from six different corners of the world, have collaborated together and co-created the Our World, Our Stories project blog.

The seven week long project has a different class, each from a different country, leading the students through learning experiences each week. For example, this week the students are discussing about the similarities and differences between their typical school days in each country.

You can learn more about all of the details on the about page here.

We absolutely love this idea and encourage everyone to check-in on the blog over the coming weeks to see how it plays out.

Or if you are interested in doing something similar with your students, feel free to leave your name, location, age group, and a link to your blog or contact info in the comments below. 

Perhaps you can find willing classes to start a global blogging project on your own.

What amazing work by these teachers, and what an exciting experience for these students!

  15. I’m an 8th grader from Argentina studying in Cairo, and I have been through projects like these, but never in EduBlog

  16. Hi!

    I teach English as a foreign language to junior high school students (aged from 13 to 15) in a rural village in the South part of Greece. Last year, my students improved, shared and provided feedback for their writing via my blog entitled icanwrite that can be found at http://www.daskalogi.edublogs.org. They found the whole blogging experience really exciting and motivating. This year, we are working on an anti-bullying campaign, some sections of which are uploaded and displayed on the blog.

    We would be glad to take part in your project.

    Best regards

    Eleni Daskalogiannaki

    • Hi Eleni:
      We’re just beginning to blog this week, but my classes are very excited about it. We’re mostly using the blog for science class, but I also teach a class that includes anti-bullying units and would love to find a way to connect with you. I teach 11-12 year-olds in rural New York state. I’ll be getting a new group of students for this class in two weeks and would love to work with you!

  19. Hi:
    I replied directly to Eleni about her anti-bullying unit, but I’d be interested in connecting with other teachers, too. I teach 6th grade (11-12 yr olds) in rural New York state. I’m not sure if someone is compiling our comments and putting something together, or if this is more of a place to post and then do-it-yourself. Does anyone know the answer?

I teach 6th grade reading in Indiana with 45 fantastic students. I wouldn’t eliminate any potential country to blog with, but we do have special units studying Italy, France, Russia, and Germany.
