About

Meet Friends in Different Worlds 
We believe that all children are bright and show curiosity about everything they see. Our service is an open door to let them see as many aspects of the worlds as possible.  Learning with pure curiosity is much more powerful than just teaching what we want them to know.

Learn from One Another 
In the field of education, we usually have "Adults→Children" structures of teaching.  What if, it transforms into "Children↔︎Children"?  Talking with students with different languages, different colors of skins, and different lifestyles, that inspires the children a lot more than telling them hundred times about what they never experienced.

 

Features

Connect

We provide online meeting between children from two countries. They will talk about anything, ask questions and have difficulties with answering the questions.  That's the time they think and create new ideas on their own.

Support

Participants are not randomly chosen. Our team has some partnership schools that look for the children who want to join the video conference.

Improvisation

We join the meeting as observers, and facilitates a little but never control what the participants talk about, because it often results in decreasing their creativity. Instead, we trust their own free will, even if it makes awkward moments.

PRICE

FREE
All you need is internet connection, a smart phone, i-Pad or computer and a little bit of curiosity.
