Teacher Takes Five!

G’day!  Come down under to DiscoveryEducatorAbroad.com to follow Discovery Educator, Josh Wolff’s adventures as he journeys with the cast and crew of the Travel Channel show 5 Takes: Pacific Rim.

Josh will be blogging four times per week, creating 2 webisodes per week, and sharing tons of digital photos as he travels around Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and other parts of the Pacific Rim. Josh will be spending one week in each location, starting in Sydney where he is right now.  On Wednesday, he will be visiting a school in Australia and welcoming our FIRST international DEN member there!

Students and teachers around the world (this means you too!) can vote on different places for Josh to visit (right now, 80% want Josh to visit “The Rocks, Historic Sydney”.) You can ask him questions on the message boards (Ask Josh!) and have him research things for you too. This is a fantatsic opportunity for students to travel virtually through a Discovery Educator. In addition, their suggestions will influence his webisodes, which will eventually make their way into unitedstreaming!

So, stop by DiscoveryEducatorAbroad.com and check it out!  Feel free to blog about it and share it at your events.

    Hi Jannita and DEN members!
    This week we had the wonderful opportunity to video chat with Josh Wolff. He was in Melbourne, Australia at the time and was talking to us from a little cafe in town.
    We learned all about the history of Melbourne and the haunted prison! Oooohhhhh!
    In our international project, we are studying what kids eat for lunch around the world. One of my kids asked about some of the foods that Josh has eaten since in Australia. Kangaroo meat is sold in their grocery stores! Josh also ate worms on an island north of Australia.
    But he said that wasn’t the worst meal he had… (ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? What could be worse?!) Apparently LIVE snails are a delacacy. And you can’t really say, “Little snail… come on out of your shell so I can eat you!” You have to crack open the shell and dig it out!!! GROSS! (Even Josh didn’t eat this meal!)
    Being a DEN Educator Abroad sounded like a really great idea… until he got to the worms and snails! Video chats… it’s a GOOD thing!
    One of my students DID ask him to video tape water going down in the toilet… how else can we find out if it really does go the opposite way in Australia?! We DID tell him, however, to make sure that there was nothing in the water!
    It was a great conversation! Josh was really sweet and answered all our crazy questions! He even gave great descriptions for my blind students!
    Once again, Discovery ROCKS!
