As part of a Fulbright Memorial Fund experience, my students have been studying about the Japanese maritime culture. We are working with educators in Onomichi Japan to develop a better understanding about the world’s ocean. Our students communicated with one another via student created web sites, exchanging email, and videoconferencing. They discussed the ocean’s effects on their lives and validated global connections, creating a deeper understanding for our world ocean.
