Skype in the Classroom
Just a quick post to alert you that Skype is soon making it easier to partner up with another teacher from somewhere around the country or world or simply search educators and classrooms anywhere you want to in order to communicate back and forth with them. In other words, why read about Mexico, California, or New York City when you could Skype a teacher in that area and with a webcam get a view of their classroom, students, and culture. An interesting idea, but likely not an idea anyone in our district has tried. Might be a good project for someone to try. You could use donorschoose or write a grant for a webcam (or buy one) and set up your own video conference with another classroom within weeks!
