Through a web-based content management system, Blackboard, elementary school students in both the U.S. and Korea will study together focusing on cultural awareness and understanding. By offering communication technologies such as an email and asynchronous discussion board, this study is purposed to identify the effect of the International-Virtual-Elementary-Classroom-Activities (IVECA) on the school in the U.S. and to discover the needs for developing an implementation plan of the IVECA. This study will measure the change of students' cultural awareness and intercultural skill through the surveys and will explore how the interaction between students and teachers meaningfully influence the change and how school system can provide support in implementing the IVECA through observation and interviews.
