Here are some topics, definitions, and links (I got these links by typing “connectedness” into Google. You can also click on images in Google and see what comes up!) to help us brainstorm our projects related to the theme CONNECTEDNESS. My first language is English and my Chinese still sucks, so it’s all in English. My friend translated “Connectedness” for me into Chinese as 連通, 連接, or 有關聯的。
Here are ALL the translations I found in the online translator I used:
通, 接, 串, 搭, 繫, 紹, 交接, 接軌, 綴, 接通, 聯姻, 連接至, 聯接, 搭接, 交結, 縶, 搭咕
There are MANY MANY ways to interperet the theme - have fun! 加油! Jia1 you2!
