Projects for the classroom
Kidlink has projects created for the classroom. These projects allow collaboration with classrooms speaking English, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, Catalan, Chinese and other languages. The language itself is not a barrier to collaboration.
Look e.g. at WAI project. Your registered students can create their pages, they can connect and work together .
