Connecting with the world
Skype in the classroom , Microsoft
Skype in the classroom is an awesome world-opener for education. You are able to bring in experts from anywhere on any subject to teach, inspire, and motivate your students in your class. Students are being able to talk to an author of a book your class just finished reading, and ask him or her questions about the book. They are able to collaborate with a class half-way around the world. All of this, and more is possible with Skype in the classroom. You can take virtual trips around the world, or you can invite a guest speaker to your class. My children love it when I bring the world to their classroom.
