ICT-based, cross-cultural communication: A methodological perspective

The article discusses how cross-cultural communication based on information and communication technologies (ICT) may be used in participatory health promotion as well as in education in general. The analysis draws on experiences from a health education research project with grade 6 (approx. 12 years) pupils in Nairobi (Kenya) and Copenhagen (Denmark) addressing the topic of physical activity in everyday life. The article outlines a sequence of educational events (the Cross-Cultural Communication (3C) model) comprising exchange of letters, recording and exchange of films and Skype communication sessions interchanging with reflection sessions in the classes.
