50 Creative Ways to Use Skype in the Classroom by @Mseideman

Skype is a free and easy way for teachers to open up their classroom. Meet new people, talk to experts, share ideas and create amazing learning experiences with teachers from around the world. Skype is a wonderful way to bring the world into the classroom. Imagine being able to bring an expert or a guest speaker into your classroom to teach a particular subject. You can even collaborate with a classroom halfway around the world. All of this is possible with Skype in the classroom.

I recently stumbled upon the article on 50 Creative Ways to Use Skype in the Classroom. She lists some interesting ways to use Skype in the Classroom and useful links on how to implement the ideas. I couldn’t agree more that Skype is a “phenomenal classroom tool.” I highly suggest reading her article find out how you can put this cool tool to work in your classroom!
