Global Connections

Welcome to the Global Connections web site

The Global Connections Project involves 10 schools in the UK and USA in classroom to classroom collaboration and exchanges, using videoconferencing and other communications technologies.

Most of the web site uses framesets to aid display and navigation.

It's best to start at the Main Index Page.
