“Students can take part in role plays, discussions and debates, and collaborative problem-solving activities. They can co-create written work and presentations. They can watch videos totally in sync with one another so that any media can be shared as a group experience.”
The virtual classrooms also provide another crucial benefit through their scope for dynamic and sympathetic cultural interactions. Teachers and policy makers recognise intercultural communication and collaborative skills as essential life skills.
“Students can communicate easily across international borders and collaborate with students from other cultures.”
