Importance of Virtual and Educational Connections
There are semesters abroad and other educational opportunities that bring to life how small and connected our world really is. This is a world in which we are really just a computer screen away from anyone at any time. Sister Cities is a good building block for these online connections
To keep engagements fresh and relevant, there needs to be a cultural and educational connection. With the technology we have now, there can be monthly or even weekly virtual meetings so that educational exchanges and relationships can be sustained through the transitions of elected officials.
Right now, it is important to find creative ways to focus on educational exchanges whether it be through Zoom or Facetime. These exchanges are very helpful for growing awareness for our citizens and leaders of the future, which are our students.
