June 3, 1998

Dr.Mary L. Radnofsky, President of the Socrates Institute, and Jean-Luc Bonnissent, Principal of the Sainte-Marie School, launched the exchange program on Tuesday morning in the school's media center.


As reported in Ouest France The partnership between Caen and her American sister city Alexandria, VA, now includes an educational program initiated by a U.S. institute specialized in pedagogy. [...] In the next school year, an exchange program will become operational between the Sainte-Marie and Bosnières schools in Caen and Patrick Henry Elementary in Alexandria. It was created and initiated by Dr. Mary Radnofsky, President of the Socrates Institute. [...] The agenda is already set: at the end of October, five French teachers will travel to the United States in order to learn how to implement this program in their own institution. The first concrete step will be to connect the schools by e-mail and via the Web. The American students will begin by visiting museums, taking digital pictures and writing commentaries on their Web site, which their French counterparts will visit virtually. The students from Caen will then in turn set up their own site to present their region, Normandy, to the students at Patrick Henry E.S. "This opening to the world and to other cultures is a fundamental aspect of our pedagogical philosophy" said Dr. Radnofsky. All students will present their work together on the occasion of Alexandria's 250th anniversary in the Spring of 1999.
