Leuven - ThinkQuest

How could I forget....?!! Should have added to the Leuven Contrasting Study post that a fundamental part of the project was the part played by ThinkQuest in allowing students from both Newport and Leuven to collaborate together in an online environment.

For those of you who don't know anything about ThinkQuest, it's basically a free online learning platform from Oracle Education (an education foundation) aimed at students between the ages of 7 and 14. Students can collaborate together using a variety of elearning tools. I'll post up some screen shot examples of children communicating with each other using ThinkQuest.

ThinkQuest is a web service that has been promoted and supported by us to our schools here in Newport for about the last 7 years.
