Being one of the designers and editors in the project, the actual task started after we received such amazing response and we had to compile it all into a beautiful magazine. That feeling cannot be explained in words. And today when we have the final output in our hand along with the Merit Award, summing up this experience seems impossible. Thus, I conclude by saying, "Cheers to iMagz-Making Myself Heard" and yes, I was able to make myself heard! Read More

Working with people in different places with different languages, race and culture is unbelievable. The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) made this unbelievable thing possible through supporting and initiating internationally acclaimed projects which need collaborations of countries from Asia and Europe.

The ASEF ClassNet project “iMagz – Making Myself Heard”is about creating a magazine which where you can write articles and post photos on any topics in our own way. The members of the said collaboration are students. I am one of those students. As a part of this project, I have learned lots of things which helped me to express myself in a better way. Read More

I worked on ASEF projects in the first and second grade of my school career and this year I will again participate in one of them. I really liked working on the Sketch-Up project in the second year, that is why I have chosen to participate again in the third year of my education. There were several things I liked about working on the project, first of all I like working with Sketch-Up a lot. Secondly, the international cooperation we had with other countries was a great chance for all of my classmates to get in touch with kids from different parts of the world. Read More

The 11th ASEF ClassNet Conference in Bali was like a packet full of surprises. Of course, the first surprise was being selected as the student representative from St. Mark’s by our Principal Ma’am. Each day I learnt something new, whether it is about fostering global collaboration or promoting friendship with other schools. Read More

International Friendship Day is about celebrating our bonds and relationships we have with people of diverse cultures, and also to strengthen that bond by means of faith and love. This is an event that signifies the great presence of the many different people we have around us, so that we learn to appreciate them and the impacts they have made in our lives. Read More

They came as strangers, but left as friends who would remain close to our hearts for a long time to come. Who knew that spending 10 days with someone from as far away as Italy would make such a huge difference in our lives? With such a brief period between our selection and their arrival, we (the 10 student hosts) were caught in that ambiguous zone of thrill and anticipation before 2nd April. Read More

I first engaged in the AEC project when I was a first-year student in my senior high school. Working with others on the Internet in English has been instructive, and has improved my language skills significantly. I have also learned things about different cultures that I never knew before.

According to me, Asia-Europe Classroom Network (AEC-NET) is a platform which helps me to see education in a different way. It makes me realise that education can, indeed, be fun. Education need not be confined to the four walls of the classrooms. Education goes beyond classrooms and as the name suggests Asia-Europe Classroom connects classrooms from across the two regions.

I enjoyed many things I did while working with the students from Asia and Europe, the live chats were what I enjoyed the most as it gave me a better view on their lifestyles and also gave me a bigger opportunity to know who I am doing the project with. Read More

Coming from two different continents with very diverse and varied cultures, I had reservations about whether we could find a common ground in the way we think as youths. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was for us to click and bond. Despite growing up in different countries and speaking completely different languages, we realised that as teenagers, we all struggled with the same issues: our need for acceptance and our journey to becoming independent individuals.

I made a lot of friends during the project, and together we shared things about our cultures and our different interests. Read More

My life starts with a warm greeting from an early sunlight ray that spreads across my half-asleep face. As a student of Davao City National High School, and a fourth year student at that, I wake up at an early hour to attend an early flag ceremony. One of the subjects that we take up in our school involved choosing an AEC project. Along with three other classmates we decided to join the project entitled “Eco Tourists’ Passports” Project. We didn’t exactly know what we were getting into but it mostly told us that we would be collaborating with other students from other schools coming from different parts of Asia and Europe.

Two different continents are interacting in one classroom, wherein everyone is in contrast to each with their cultures, languages, traditions and environments. It may be impossible to think that these two continents, Asia and Europe, can comprehend each other in spite of the differences that they have. They may not be the same but they are still one creation that God made as they are living on the same planet… We are still ONE in mind and in heart to survive all circumstances as we live on Earth and may come to a productive and joyful living.

Working with students and teachers from other schools was a wonderful experience. Working with them has taught me how to cooperate with students who are from different countries with different cultures and languages. These projects made me learn to love our mother earth and save it for our future and future generations to come. I have realised that even a single small step towards saving our earth and our natural resources is an important step and it does count. Read More
