Global LYNCs, which stands for Linking Youth through Net Communications, has been facilitating online cultural exchange between New Zealand and Korea since its introduction in 2018, following its successful implementation in Australia in 2015. Over the past five years, the project has provided authentic learning opportunities for students through regular video conference sessions between sister schools in both countries.

This project involves

  • Matching your class with a class at a partner school in Korea
  • Regular ZOOM videoconferencing sessions in English which you are invited to by email
  • Building strong, sustainable partnerships

Students will be able to grow their

  • Global awareness and competence
  • Intercultural knowledge, skills and understanding
  • ICT skills
  • Communication skills and collaboration skills

Teacher training and support with resources and technology will be provided.

This project is primarily focused on cultural exchange, welcoming participation from schools of all levels (primary, intermediate, or secondary). If students have sufficient proficiency in Korean, there is an option to incorporate a language component into the exchange.

If you are interested in joining or learning more about the project, please contact the Global LYNCs team at globallyncs@gmail.com.
