WHAT is Artmile International Collaborative Learning
AICL is Artmile International Collaborative Learning where schools in Japan and schools abroad interactively learn on global issues using ICT and express what they want to convey to the world in a visible way, jointly creating one mural by halves as their learning outcome.
