Pintu Thaker Reflection:

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. Effie Kyrikakis, 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 other countries, new web development skills (CSS, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, XHTML, javaScript, etc…), and also they have foster cultural understandings.
I am looking forward to work with this project in future and help students to develop many new 21st century skills and cultural understandings.

Monika Uppal Reflection:

Hello! I am Monika Uppal teaching computers in St. Mark's Sr. Sec. Public School, Janakpuri, India. It has been a great learning experience for our students as they got a chance to compete at International Level with the students of other countries; Thus enhancing their web development skills and also knowing their team mates culturally well. I am really thankful to Janet for being such a good mentor without whose guidance this website would not have been possible. I am proud to have worked with such talented and hard working teachers Pintu from USA and Effie from Greece.

Effie Reflection:

As this was the first time we took part in the GVC contest, it was a wonderful learning experience for our school. We loved collaborating with students from virtually around the globe. The students did a lot of hard work and enjoyed learning how to collaborate assynchronously, do time management how to find information online and how to respect copyright issues. We all feel very proud because we have contributed to the creation of a wonderful website, both spectacular and informmative . We are looking forward to more learning experiences like this one in the future.
