Making The Connection
This week’s Fabulous Friday Find is all about making connections outside your classroom by finding people and other students to connect with your students without leaving school. And we bet you’ve already heard of it before.
Skype is so widely known, it’s used more as a verb when speaking. Skype began simply as a tool to help people connect and share through video, text, and voice. Put simply, a phone with video and chat on a computer. But just as you need to know the other person’s phone number that you’re trying to reach, you needed to know the other person’s information to connect with Skype as well. However, Skype is now working to further education and has created Skype in the Classroom!
