We created the Language in the cloud project in order to connect the children in the homes in Japan with children outside of Japan. Giving them a fun and curious way of interacting with each other.
The other reality about the children living in the homes in Japan is that they are multi-cultural and so we do not want them to think of themselves as "half" but rather DOUBLE. Double the cultures, double the person.
By giving them not only access to the internet but having class blogs to share, the children have a medium to be able to express themselves in writing utilizing the NightZooKeeper writing software or Missions for the younger kids.
There are contests and orbs to be won for the more words that they write.
Thanks to your contribution, we are able to place more computers in homes and connect the kids with more children overseas.
