Several weeks ago, I was approached by an innovative Victorian Teacher Meli Panagiotidis from Kurunjang Secondary College. She was interested in bringing in other classes virtually to share their amazing day of cultural activities that she had organised for her school -Cultural Diversity Celebrations. Her ideas were to bring in an Asian and an Australian class(es) and wondered about making connections with someone in Asia and the best tool to use.
