Nordisk skolechat (Nordic schoolchat)

What is Nordisk skolechat?
Nordisk Skolechat is a free chat-event, where Nordic students can communicate directly with other students from around the Nordic region in a chat-roulette. During the chat event, there are two chat-windows open on the screen – one where the students can see themselves, and one where the students can see a randomly selected student from another Nordic country. The students can jump from one Nordic meeting to another by clicking next in the chat-program.
Students from any Nordic country can participate in Nordisk Skolechat – all they need to do is gather the courage to communicate in Danish, Norwegian or Swedish.
Nordisk Skolechat has developed three different concepts to transform the learning process into a fun and optimized game-like activity. The ‘Geo-hunt’ challenges the students’ knowledge of the geography of the Nordic region. In the ‘Celebrity Game’, the chat participants are assigned the names of famous individuals, but the chat-window only shows the “celebrity-identity” of the chat-partner. By asking each other questions, the students then need to guess, which celebrity they are themselves, and they have only five minutes to do so! The last concept ‘Question-hour’, allows the students to steer the conversation themselves, and ask questions about what they want to know more about.
