Skype in the Classroom

“Skype in the classroom is a free community to help teachers everywhere use Skype to help their students learn. It’s a place for teachers to connect with each other, find partner classes and share inspiration. This is a global initiative that was created in response to the growing number of teachers using Skype in their classrooms.”

Skype has recently set up Skype in the Classroom– essentially a forum for teachers to contact to one another in order to set up shared projects across communities or across the world. Resources for teachers are also available. Check out more information here regarding Skype in the Classroom. Is anybody presently using Skype in the classroom? Let’s us know.

To help you understand what a blog is……


A blog is essentially a website that have some special characteristics:

  • A main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest on top. Often, the articles are organized into categories.
  • An archive of older articles.
  • A way for people to leave comments about the articles.
  • A list of links to other related sites, sometimes called a “blogroll”.
  • One or more “feeds” like RSS, Atom or RDF files.”
