Years ago, children had pen pals to make friends in other countries. These days they can talk to each other in real time on the internet. 

These students from Marlborough Primary School in Melbourne are skyping their sister-school, MIN Cempaka Putih in Jakarta, as part of a project by the Australia-Indonesia Institute and Asia Education Foundation to give students from both countries the chance to learn about language and build intercultural understanding. 

Do you think these cross-country conversations make a difference to kids' education?
