Associate Professor Mark Pegrum and Dr Grace Oakley from The University of Western Australia’s Graduate School of Education have won an Australia-Japan Foundation grant from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The grant worth $22,000 will help middle school students in Australia and Japan create and share multimodal e-books to support their learning about each other's language and culture. Grace and Mark together with other partners from four universities in Japan will support school teachers to build sustainable links.
Grace will travel to Japan in December to visit the schools and partners in Honshu and Kyushu.
