European students had instructions for, among others, use one or more ICT tools (Prezi, video, data projector, internet and social networks …) and ensure their multicultural communication (presentations were in English -> how to be understood by Francophones).
After an initial debriefing, both with our students HELMo that European students (and their teachers), it appears that this activity was very experienced and she has to share rich content both on the same time (in class).
Finally, some European students propose to create a Facebook group to continue sharing (despite the physical distance) some information and some questions.

  1. It was a good experience but i felt it to be very stressfull because of langauge barriers. Besides all dificulties the students seem to be interested and curious about us and about generation Z. We were able to catch their atention and engage them in the activities. Our group splitted in two and teached two different classes using, video, glogster, powerpoint and socrative as tools. It was a good experience in terms of teaching and in terms of multiculturallity.
