Using Microsoft Translator app to help children teach and collaborate with one another. We would love to have others join us.

Microsoft Translator Project

Doncaster, United Kingdom
A UK school and a Finnish one are getting their children to collaborate and communicate with each other by using the app. The children have sessions each month where they help teach each other about specific language skills as well as talk about themes such as hobbies. Through the app, the children type their questions in their own language, but it is translated for their peers instantaneously.
Introduction

Communication through instantaneous translation

“'That was awesome!'”

What we do?

We work together with partner schools to find out about one another using the Microsoft Translator app. We use the safe space area on the app to enable the children to talk to one another securely. 

Why we do it?

Through the app, we are able to communicate and collaborate with people across the globe. We can help our children find out about the world around them, explore new perspectives, ask questions and recognise that people across the world can support their learning and help their understanding.
