Skype is a free resource you can use to connect your students with other classrooms and experts locally or around the world. Several NCCS teachers are using Skype in innovative ways. Conover School teacher Jamie Smith uses Skype to allow her students to communicate with people outside of their classroom walls. NCMS teachers, including Charles Rananto, Terrie McGill, Pete Dragstrem, and Kecia Hopper use Skype to integrate curricular areas. Students and teachers work collaboratively on assignments across classrooms and subject areas. Thinking about using Skype in your classroom but not sure how to get started?
