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.

While Skype offers an additional option, it is limited by the 1:1 connection (unless you pay for an upgraded version) as well as the inability to screenshare, etc. However, it may be a very good option when looking at international connections and low-cost alternatives and should not be summarily dismissed.

As always you just have to have rich imagination and ideas how to use tools for creative and useful educational purposes  and it works!!! :)

Robin Good: LiveMinutes is a real-time collaboration tool that enables you to leverage the good audio conferencing capabilities of Skype while providing you with an elegantly-designed interface to share and collaborate around documents and presentations.

Not only. All your uploaded files are stored in a library where you can organize the according to types. 100MB capacity. (soon to be extended)


Other key features include:

Google Plusでのハングアウトはアーカイブ・Youtube公開が出来る点は便利だけれど操作の難しさがつきまとうので悩ましいことも。
ともあれ、選択肢が広がるのはgood :)

@Edumorfosis La muerte anunciada de Skipe por parte de Microsoft, no es una realidad por su esfuerzo disruptivo de ser la herramienta on line de encuentro entre pares.

Temía su desaparición luego de la compra del producto, pero veo que esta en pleno auge....
