    video Conferencing - where to get contacts?

    So we have the nice shiny new kit ...now where the hell do you go to find other schools in different countries who'd on the off chance wanna hook up with ya?

    Is there some sort of swap shop site somewhere where you advertise for like minded saddos?

    We're looking at MFL > Spanish and French initially.

    British Council is a good site... http://www.britishcouncil.org/

    A lot of schools have links with schools already - might be an idea to start out with a school you already have a relationship with.

    Global Leap http://www.global-leap.com/

    Nelson Thornes (used to be called Moorehouse Black) http://www.nelsonthornes.com/wps/por...stancelearning

    Cluster Web http://clusterweb.org.uk/cs/communit...l/default.aspx

    Also have a look at the Janet JVCS website as they list Museums etc that do VC with schools or have online video content.

    http://www.ja.net/community/schools/vc/content.html

    Have a quick google, lots out there if you look.

    Also look for schools that have 'International School' status as this means they already have links with a number of schools abroad.

    Strangely enough, for a technology college we use hardly any technology to keep in touch but we still have lots of links.
