Video captures UFCOE-Thailand education connection

(WATCH THIS VIDEO) … UF-Thailand Classroom Connection

University of Florida social studies methods doctoral student JASON SCHIPPER and elementary education students in the “Social Studies for Diverse Learners” class he teaches are featured in this new flipcam video release. Schipper used a scholarship he received from the Kappa Delta Pi Educational Foundation to fund research and technology to connect his class virtually with elementary school classrooms in Thailand, where he once taught. Schipper’s preservice teacher candidates interact virtually with the Thai students as they develop lesson plans and assignments for the Thai elementary classrooms.

Schipper demonstrates to his students the proper Thai gesture for a casual greeting that they would later use on a video to the Thai elementary students. (Photos by Larry Lansford)
