Abstract [en]

To have class room lessons in mathematics over the Internet in Göteborg and Shanghai at the same time.Online classrooms and distance education have been developed and discussed a lot during the last ten years; i.e. online lectures from one teacher to a group of distance students. But connecting two classrooms with each other on a regular basis through video conferencing and programs like Skype, are more of an exception. The question is why. After all, this technique has been around for a while; it is easy and works rather well even over rather poor conditions.A teacher in mathematics in Göteborg and her high school class has on a monthly basis a couple of lessons together with a high school class on the same level in Shanghai in China and she has taken the Skype technique a bit further. Today she works with a SmartBoard solution, where these electronic whiteboards are simultaneously updated, in China and in Sweden, together with sound and video connection with Skype and text messages on MSN. Between the lessons the students keep in touch with each other through MSN and e-mail.This poster will describe one of these events with photos together with interviews with students and teachers; hopefully on both ends. One part of the poster will conclude pros and cons, possibilities and problems and ask questions about what other advantages such a cooperation between class rooms can have apart from a deeper mathematical knowledge.
