Skype in the Classroom: The Sixteen Project

Problem of practice

What does it mean to be sixteen in other places around the world? How can students follow and document the life of students globally to capture the unique and universal experience of being a teenager? How can students use technology to capture and document digital narratives that will allow them to develop an understanding of world cultures and civilizations? How can educators use social media to create both a network and community of participants for this project?


Students will Skype with teenagers abroad to make connections between their own cultural experiences and other places around the world. Students will use iMovie to produce a collaborative video documentary that explores the coming of age experience.
