I received the e-mail message from Huang RuiPing (Head of HuaJing Primary School) and she told me that her school would like to take the lead to implement the project learning in the new school year.  Topics she proposed and I amended are as follows:
P1-2: Protecting the Environment
P3-4: Chinese traditional festival
P5-6: Protecting the traditional culture

I intend to name this project as "IE learning circle" and apart from schools in Tianhe District, I also invite schools from Lianan (San Jiang and Shun De), Zhongshan and Foshan to participate.  In the process, teachers and students can make use of the web/internet (Mainland) to exchange views and upload whatever information and resources that may be useful for the learning.  Upon the completion of the project, I would like them to have a forum inviting all participating students to come and share with the audiences on their achievements.

What are your views?  Any suggestions.  If it is worth to have it, I will go to GZ again and to finalize the details to enable it be carried out in 2012/13 school year.
