4. GLOBAL DIALOGUE - The global dialog is the main part of the project. It is important to let the kids dedicate time to do this. Do not let therefore the creative part takes to long time. Read more in  Kidlink Dialogue

  • During the project you can communicate with classes and teachers in f.b. “Doves for peace” Kidlink closed group
  • enlightenedOne possible dialog, if students have registered, created their pages and have posted their doves,    is done by writing comments in the other students pages. Write eg  an evaluation of that page. What do you thing is missing in the page? What questions should have been interesting to raise? It is important to be kind and constructive making good suggestions.
  • Another dialog can be done organizing eg a skype chat. Prepare questions you did not find answers to in the students pages. It is important to choose a few students who will be ambassadors for your class.We encourage any creativity in doing this project so as communucation with Skype or Google Hangout, Twitter, blogging or emails.


How to support your registered students dialogue 

In "Kidspace", the dialogue is done by students when they interact with each other by inserting comments in the pages of their partners with the approval of their teachers, or by talking in Skype.

  • Teachers have to encourage their students to visit the pages of their partners in the project. On the bottom of each Kidspace page you can click on the nickname of the page's author.
  • Students  have to use the option [Add Comment] in order to a success of the project and to leave public messages in their partners'pages.
  • Sometimes comments can be very trivial, with only a word like e.g. "Cool" or "Wow"... but kids should be helped to built better relationships with a more structured dialogue. Look at Conversional writing - colloquial tone at Dialogue Teory.
  • Students can dialogue by chat too. For each project is possible to organize a moderate chat in Skype where students involved in the project can talk.
  • Teachers can support their students'work, by writing in their pages comments with suggestions to improve what they do or to encourage

Let your students have dialogue and give time for this. The project will profit from it!
