Chinese New Year – Video Conference

Above: Chinese New Year





The London Grid for Learning, working in partnership with Redbridge LA, will be hosting a videoconference for both primary and secondary schools to celebrate the Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger) on 8th February 2010 live from the Redbridge Teachers’ Centre.

London Grid for Learning is preparing to link up schools across London, United Kingdom and China – live - using videoconferencing systems.

The event will exhibit the highlights of the contributions and achievements made by schools in Redbridge about Chinese culture in the local and national community from KS1 – KS4.

It will allow students to have the opportunity, through technology, to develop their speaking, listening and presenting skills as well as expanding their capacity to reflect on and aspire to the acquisition of the attributes that are fitting for a global citizen in the 21st Century.

The programme will include:

  • In-session discussion – pupils will pose questions to the Chinese presenter and   London born actress – `Angela May` (there will be a focus on encouraging pupils’ to engage and communicate effectively with the presenter).
  • Presentations from individual schools in China and London.
  • Thai Chi and Calligraphy Demonstration.
  • Dragon Dancers.
  • Opportunities for pupils and teachers to discover more about Chinese culture in their classroom.

Schools do not need Video Conferencing equipment to participate, just their  internet connection. We will be streaming the event live with an online forum to allow pupils to interact with the presentations.
