Deputy Mayor of London visits VCfGL

The Deputy Mayor of London, Roger Evans, arrived at the classrooms of Video Conferencing for Global Learning in Wanstead, Redbridge to speak to the London based Remote Teachers and the children they teach English to. The primary school children were sitting over five thousand miles away in their classrooms in Uruguay.

Roger quoted, "This is a very valuable initiative for London, VCfGL is building links between our capital city and exciting emerging markets in South America"

Even though children here in England are on their summer holidays, it is winter in Uruguay and it is still term time as normal.

Roger spoke to the, VCfGL English teachers about their "new high tech jobs" and then to the children in Uruguay over video conference.  The children and class teacher in Uruguay were honoured that he had come to observe their English lesson and that Roger had taken time in his busy schedule to come to speak to them.
