The program was electric! My students were excited every single day. A real photostory –
about a real child – brought the entire culture alive for them. Their questions – and discoveries –

The students were like little sponges soaking up a new concept. They used higher levels of
thinking to learn about children …., and then compared this knowledge with their own lives . . . They learned
how to observe, analyze, think and create in ways they had not done before . . .the impact of this experience has
changed the way these students learn.

The students were literally jumping out of their seats to ask and answer questions.
I even had parents coming in to see the program.

The photo-stories…made abstract concepts real. The students became close to the kids
featured in the stories: they were real people – real pictures.

Ms Klatchko’s (Galapagos) project allowed the ..students to be apart of a larger world . . . a wonderful
learning experience that they will always remember! I hope that we can go along on future expeditions.

. . . students were still talking about the videoconference and building on knowledge learned months
after the project ended.. . . Teachers saw the EJK Project as a way to extend and enrich their existing curricula.
