Just before we went to Holland, (see the next entry) we tried to have a video conference with some children from De Rank. The were going to be the the Hague with various important people present.
Primary Six practised hard all week. We were trying to get round the language/accent problems by having our presentation simple with a fair bit of artwork and slides on the white board. Our presentation was on our plans for the Holland trip.
Unfortunately after half a dozen rehearsals, the connection did not work.
This is probably the biggest drawback of technology.
Having said that, I suppose the children are getting better and better with presenting, great improvements in use of voice and audience awareness.
