Welcome to Skype in the classroom | Skype Education

Welcome to Skype in the classroom | Skype Education | Global Awareness - a 21st Century Skill | Scoop.it

Skype in the classroom is a free community to help teachers everywhere use Skype to help their students learn.

Sarah Colangelo's curator insight, October 25, 2013 1:51 PM

Integrating Skype into the classroom is a great way to promote global awareness and bring culture into the classroom. By connecting with teachers in other countries, language teachers can participate in a "classroom exchange" where they exchange ideas and resources typically used in their classroom as a way of exposing the students to the classroom routines of an English class in a foreign country. Establishing this connection can open new doors for students and maybe even give them a partner to practice their speaking via Skype. By establishing this connection with another class abroad, foreign language students can directly connect to the educational experiences of students their age in another country to gain an insight into culture.
