SKYPE in the Classroom
As part of Microsoft Education and Office 365 we have a great feature available to our district. It is called SKYPE in the Classroom! This program is an innovative way to connect your classroom with others. You can connect your students with other classrooms around the world and collaborate on projects, invite an expert to talk to your students or take your class on a virtual field trip.
