Activities

Students respond to weekly tasks in their platform groups by making and uploading short videos, or photos with text.

Students video chat in small groups during class using pre-written questions and conversation starters.

Multimedia Pals.png

Students engage in a larger task like making a cooking instructional video or a tourism commercial.


Standard Path

Multimedia Pals
10 tasks over the course of 10 - 12 weeks
Class Video Chat
5 video chat sessions, weekly or bi weekly
Special Projects
1 special project to conclude the exchange

Alternative Path

If a school has insufficient technology or WiFi to video-chat in class, or if the partnered teachers have some other reasons, they can create an alternative path with additional multimedia tasks and/or special projects. SammTalk will advise how to best arrange this.

Membership Fees

Membership fees support the development of activities, maintenance of the platform, and expansion to new schools. SammTalk does not give any profit to investors.

Per 1 Class, Per Year

no matter the number of students

Example: If your school is in Norway (A) and has 3 classes in SammTalk, the membership fee would be €750 total for the year.

Who is SammTalk

Made by teachers, for teachers

Taylor and Ander are behind the scenes of SammTalk, working as teachers and working with teachers to design and provide SammTalk. We met during an Erasmus+ exchange in Oslo, while working as language teaching assistants.

SammTalk began in early 2017 as a small project and then grew into a social enterprise business. That means all fees paid by schools are spend directly on SammTalk and supporting our team, with no money going to investors or owners. SammTalk’s growth is directed by feedback and ideas from teacher and students.
