How I Use It
We have connected with classrooms in other countries that we were pen pals with. We also have worked on collaborative projects with other classrooms in our division without the cost of actually traveling to their location.
My Take
This is a great resource to use in the classroom. By using Skype, you can connect your classroom with others anywhere in the world or right across the hall. I would like additional features such as file sharing and the ability to call more than one other person at a time.
