Fall 2011 (November 2 version) Telecollaboration Project Guidelines Overview You will make three 30-minute out-of-class Skype

talks (or possibly Face Time, email, SSN, etc.) with your tele-pal overseas. The Skype talks are your homework. Due to the time difference between the Philippines and Japan, you might have to make a late night or early morning Skype talk. Three Skype Talks (1) Introduce yourself. (2) Introduce your culture. Choose one theme about your culture and describe it in detail. (3) Introduce transportation in your country. Choose one theme about your transportation and describe it in detail. Reports and Presentations After each Skype talk, you will write a reflection in English (50 words) and present your reflection to your classmates (1 minute). For your reflection, explain what you learned. Use at least two specific examples to concretely explain what you mean.

We are learning communication skills together. Thats what support teams are for. Below are 7 helpful hints. Lets communicate together! You should get as much contact information from both your overseas and home support team. Especially email addresses, Skype names, and phone numbers.
1.

If you have trouble connecting with your tele-pal, or if your tele-pal fails to help you complete your homework assignment, ask for help from both your overseas and home support team. They will help you.
2.

If a home support team member fails to help an overseas support team member complete a homework assignment, Skype talk with the overseas team member to help complete the homework assignment.
3.

Send email messages with identifiable subject headings. For example, Skype talk from Nihon University.
4.

When sending email messages for help, put all team members in cc: so everyone is aware and can help you.
5.

In some cases, you need to make a new email address and try again. Especially if someone accidentally marked your email address as spam.
6.

If you would like help with the Skype talks, ask your home support team to make the Skype talk together with you.

Thank you for learning together!
