online platform Skype
in the classroom is a free global community designed to help like-minded teachers find each other
and relevant projects according to search criteria such as the age
groups they teach, location and subjects of interest; and teaching
resources can be easily shared and found.
From language studies
and geography lessons to virtual field trips and expert speakers joining
classes from afar, Skype video offers a way to help students
discover new cultures, languages and ideas without leaving the
classroom. The platform, which has been in beta since the end of December,
has a community of more than 3900 teachers, across 99 countries.To join, visit education.skype.com.
