This is the best example of Skype or video-conferencing I have ever seen in the classroom, or elsewhere for that matter.
My fourth graders have produced a 5 minute video that tells the story of how we â€œSkypeâ€ a classmate that has leukemia into our classroom.
See the video here.
What a wonderful project. After a week of listening to school administrators justify why certain technologies are blocked in schools (e.g., Youtube, Skype, Blogger), this video has given me even more evidence of why it is unwise (and likely wrong) to do so.
