Early English winner – project with Namibia

Ok, so the prize was handed out a week ago but it’s never too late….the winner of the first prize for the best VVTO (early English) bachelor’s research was Eliene Sonneveld (right on photo) who set up and evaluated a project whereby a school in the Netherlands twinned up digitally with a school in Namibia. The children learnt a great deal about their own and each other’s cultures by simply describing them to each other via various projects.

Here’s a link to the websites Eliene set up:

www.online-exchange.wikispaces.com      – the exchange with Soest (NL) and Kamanjab (Namibia)

www.netherlandsandcuracao.wikispaces.com  – the exchange with Veenendaal (NL) and Curaçao

And for those willing to read her final report (in Dutch) here’s the link: www.europeesplatform.nl/sf.mcgi?4076&cat=769
