Taiwan’s Cross-Cultural Digital Journal Exchange Program

Provides an opportunity for students to expand their cultural knowledge and interact with global peers.

A journal exchange program that integrates social-emotional learning and cross-cultural exchange through AI technology and comic art.

Plan Concept

We hope that through this project, students will not be limited by time or distance, and through technology, every student will have the right to authentic learning opportunities, to engage with peers around the world and to expand their worldview.

Program goals

Cultivate students' social-emotional literacy and enhance students' confidence in self-expression.

Provide students with an international perspective as well as inspire interests in caring about the environment and the international community.

Expand teachers' ability to apply technology in their teaching to enrich their curriculum.

Program Content

According to the registration status of the program, we will match schools in different regions to promote cross-cultural overseas exchanges.
