Nikki, I believe Judi forwarded my email about a cultural exchange. I would be will to set up email pals with you as I do my unit on culture in art. The unit I did last time I addressed this topic involved looking at Aboriginal art online (I have 8 computers in my room, can bring in more) and discussing how it expressed the culture of the Aboriginal people. The students then examined objects, images, patterns from their world and created their own cultural painting. It would be really neat to have them be able to email students from Australia.
I have 200+ students in art so we may have a few student from each art section communicate with ours students. I would be very flexible in setting this up.

> Hello All,
> I was wondering if anyone out there taught IT or computing (or Art with access to computers) to kids around the age of 12/13. If so, I have a class that would like to have some email friends they can write to. We are in Perth, Western Australia. I have 21 students who would be interested.
