Skype in the Classroom
Some amazing activities you can do just once or twice a year are:
- Mystery Skype - A hidden location guessing game using laminated maps
- Mystery Number Skype - 20 questions with a mystery number using the 100's chart to eliminate numbers as you go
These on average take 20 minutes and often times the students will stay on and chat a little after the game is over to compare locations, schools, interests, etc. In addition, many teachers will chart their calls on a map pinning locations and the classroom or school's name. Some educators have set a goal to connect with all 50 states throughout the school year or over a number of years. Everyone is very helpful and patient. They are usually happy to walk you through the process for the first time. You can find teachers on Skype in the Classroom website or on Twitter using #SkypeClassroom #MysterySkype.
