Hello, my name is Pintu Thaker and I teach Web Design at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross Georgia, USA.
It was very nice working with MS Monika Uppal, MS Vesna Srnic, and MS Janet Barnstable.
Students  have enjoyed this global project and developed many skills, such as collaboration not only within the classroom but they collaborate globally with Croatia and India, new web development skills (CSS, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, XHTML, javaScript, etc…), and also they foster India and Croatia’s cultural understanding.
 I am looking forward to work with this project in future and help students to develop many new 21st century skills and cultural understandings.

I am Seerat Dheer of St. Marks School Janakpuri, India.

 

I am a member of GVC – 1116, GVC has been a wonderful, educative and enduring experience. We got to learn about two culturally rich countries – U.S.A and Croatia and communicated with them and made friends, thanks to twiducate.com. We also embodied the glimpse of religious and cultural priced possessions of our country to the other two nations on Wikimonika1971. There is something special about GVC that makes me feel fortunate to have participated in it, after all its like sitting at one place and exploring about the spectacular beauties of the world!!

GVC has been a very awesome experience for me, it’s a good way to learn, discover and interact! Conversation with countries like U.S.A and Croatia has never been so easy at school level, all credits go to twiducate.com, and Wikimonika1971 where we uploaded our information on the culture and religious beliefs of India. GVC is a marvelous platform that makes the worldwide connectivity easier and it’s a pleasure to be a part of it!

Working for Global Virtual Classroom (GVC) was a profoundly prodigious experience. We learnt a lot of new things during our this incumbency. We got a chance to brush up on our editing, writing and software skills. We also got a chance to interact with transoceanic people and befriend them. Wikispace, twiducate.com and E-mails served as a viaduct for our communication.

 

Even being a back-breaker, it was an utterly marvellous experience. We hope that you appreciate and cherish our efforts.

The journey of GVC has been a great pleasure to me.

 

From the commencement to the end of the programme we communicated with all the member countries through Twiducate which proved to be resourceful. We also made introductory videos for other team-members to know our cultural heritage. It helped me and all my fellow mates to get to know about other participants & exchange their knowledge and valuable thoughts. The stimulating support of teachers and all the team-members turned out the programme very well.

We posted our documents and presentation in a combined form on twiducate in which we created our own page in wikispace named- wikimonika1971. We interacted through E-mails and had a really exciting experience. I am looking forward to be a part of GVC in the further years also.

I have been a member of GVC for the year 2011-12.

 

It has proved to be a very beneficial platform for me to interact with people belonging to USA and Croatia. A very important aspect of this interaction was Twiducate, which helped me to share my thoughts. I also learned about other students from USA and Croatia, thus enriching my interest.

 

Apart from all the interaction, we also worked upon providing knowledge to students from the other two countries about our country’s religious and cultural heritage.

 

We uploaded all the write-ups and paintings on wiki monika1971, thus creating a big online library about India.
