Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Skype is a great tool to use in learning as it provides real time engagement with experts. This a great article with ideas about thinking outside of the box when integrating Skype.

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

Reinventing Education To Teach Creativity And Entrepreneurship | Information Technology Learn IT - Teach IT | Scoop.it
As you read this, students all over the country are sitting for state standardized exams. Schools spend up to 40% of the year on test prep, so that, shall we say, no child is left behind.

 

Schools used to be gatekeepers of knowledge, and memorization was key to success. Thus, we measured students’ abilities to regurgitate facts and formulas. Not anymore.

Thinking Different: Unlocking the Keys to Your Creativity

Thinking Different: Unlocking the Keys to Your Creativity | Information Technology Learn IT - Teach IT | Scoop.it
Drawing on both the right and the left logical side is more difficult in large part because we have not used the right side much. Most education aims at nurturing the left side so after a time the right side kind of atrophies.

 

Learning to be creative opens the door to painting or performing or pursuing a new vocation or hobby. Unfortunately, we live in a left-brained world and most people have forgotten how to exercise the right hemisphere.

 

It takes time and effort to relearn, to let go, be creative. Making mistakes, taking risks, experimenting is all part of the formula.

 

Yet there is profound hope because "we are all born creative," as creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson asserts.

Creativity is the result of a set of relationships with a strong social dimension and emotional. It is a collaborative environment (and this is where HR can play a significant role), hence the change of focus towards the organizational culture and transformation in design organizations.”

 

“We need an inclusion in this dialogue from artists, from poets, from writers — from ===> people who can bring a human element into this discussion. <====
