Hoping to create an ongoing global connection in your classroom? How about just finding group in another state or country to casually talk to a few times to let your students meet peers of a different culture virtually?
The Skype Blog announces that it will be launching a free online directory in December that makes connecting easy. Pre-register now!
From the site:
Once you sign up with your Skype account and create a profile, you’ll be able to search for other teachers and classes by subject and region. You can also share inspiration and tips to help kids learn with Skype.
From today teachers can request an invitation to use the beta version of the directory. If you’re a teacher and you would like to be among the first to use Skype in the classroom, provide your email address and we’ll send you an invitation.
