Winners calling ANTARCTICA

Our class communicates with The Amudsen-Scott station in the South Pole!
Johan, one of the scientists working in the station is open to our questions!
Here's some of the information he has sent us so far:

.... Due to our remote
location, actual telecommunications are problematic (though not
completely impossible), but we do welcome email correspondence.
The most frequent type of interaction that we have is more of a one-off,
where classes that are studying Antarctica put together a list of
questions, which we answer......

.....We are, by the way, scheduled to "open" tomorrow, though

the weather suggest that we may be a few days behind
schedule.  The temps are warm enough, but we've got high
winds and low visibility.

...and here are some photos of the station that Johan sent us....

You can find a lot of information and amazing videos in this site about Antarctica

We are Digital Citizens

Being a digital citizen means much more than having internet connection.
  • It means being smart and alert when online.
  • It means respect others and their work and be polite but also be confident and stand-up to cyber bullying.
  • It means we belong to a global community of learners.
Let's look at some smart rules on how to surf safely online!

A friend who lives abroad has just bought a laptop with internet connection and asked for your advice on how to stay safe on the the internet. Write a letter to him/her giving him tips on how to surf smartly.
