Abstract [en]

With ever-increasing globalization of economies and societies, educators recognize that proficiency in multiple languages and insight into cultural differences are essential components of sound curricula. Participation in international classroom learning partnerships is one way to accomplish these goals. This chapter describes an ongoing collaboration, named Bridges Across the Atlantic, between elementary students in Sweden and the United States. Students work together and share ideas on various projects in math, science, social studies, and literacy. Using traditional and emerging technologies, they are able to experience first hand the language and culture of their peers on the other side of the Atlantic. Advice is given on establishing similar projects, setting classroom learning goals, and choosing appropriate technology resources. Research implications are described and topics for further research are suggested.
