Skype In The Classroom

Session Overview

Technology is allowing us to connect with others as never before, and

classrooms can now take part in this exciting adventure. In this session, we will

demonstrate strategies to help teachers successfully use Skype through their

Office365 account to bring the outside world in to their building. Learn how to

play a Mystery Skype game with a classroom across the country, invite a guest

speaker in to discuss your topic first hand, or take a virtual field trip to a new

land. All of these and more are available with the click of a button. Come find
