Top 10 Ways to Use Skype in Your Classroom
Learn about different cultures first hand
While you may not be able to take a field trip to an Indian reservation, for example, you can tune into Skype to watch Native Americans demonstrate a dance. Or if you're celebrating the Chinese New Year in your classroom, use Skype to watch the festivities in progress—in China! Using Skype instead of watching a video means that far-away participants can answer questions (or teach dance steps) live.
