Skype in the Classroom is a new collaborative platform recently released by Skype (Microsoft). As a classroom teacher, you have the opportunity to view connect with teachers across the globe. You can create your own class page as well as lesson plans. However, my favorite feature is the “#MysterySkype” format. #MysterySkype aims at connecting students in classrooms all over the world. In a similar way that Explore.org helps to bring Mother Nature into the classroom, Skype in the Classroom brings a global perspective into the classroom!
