Teachers looking to step up their game in the classroom now have a new resource to utilize. Skype has just launched “Skype in the Classroom”, a network dedicated to teachers. How it works? Teachers first create profiles to describe their classes and teaching interests. Once they have a listing, they can use the directory service to locate other teachers with relevant interests, or similar classes and communicate with them. This allows teachers to learn from one another, and to even coordinate special projects between classes, different schools, and even countries over the internet. Skype in the Classroom gives teachers a way to easily get in touch with more experienced seniors who might have tips and tricks to pass on to the younger generation of teachers starting out. If it’s all for improving the quality of education for our future generations, it can only be a good thing. Find out more about Skype in the Classroom.
