Across the world from your classroom, with @skypeclassroom

My lovely friends at Made by Many have made a new animation video explaining Skype in the Classroom. The service itself has changed considerably, and made a lot of progress in becoming even more useful for teachers across the globe to use. They’re also looking for experts in different fields who’d like to share their expertise with children. Log-in is now simplified: teachers can log in with their Facebook, Twitter or Skype IDs, and it’s very simple to search for collaborators using the new profile pages and homepage. They built the Collections section after I left, and I love how it groups projects together under themes too. Take a look, and don’t forget to pass it on to any friends or colleagues in the education field.
