21 Skype Lessons for Learning!

SkpyeHave you considered using Skype in a classroom setting?

Skype can be viewed as a mini and potentially mobile I- TV session-accessible on several gadgets.  If you have a device with a webcam and internet access, this resource can often be used at no additional cost. Once a free account is created,  a program can be downloaded for a computer, television and/or an app for a mobile phone, tablet, iPod, etc.

Because of its flexibility and relatively easy set-up process, some schools are developing “Skype lessons.” This is a pre-scheduled lesson in which a teacher invites a content expert into their classroom via Skype. The students are able to hear and see the guest speaker, in real-time, via streaming video.
