Our weekly Saturday show resumed in January with hosts Peggy George, Kim Caise and Lorna Costantini! In addition to the weekly show, throughout 2009 we will also have special events–like the “What We Learned in 2008″ year-end show. If you miss a show, you will find links to the recorded session under the Archives tab. Follow-up learning suggestions are also provided under the Resources tab for each show.
I’m looking forward to joining Peggy, Kim and Lorna for this Valentine’s Day conversation. I do love using Skype!
Lisa Parisi’s March 2008 post “Best Day Ever!” about three different, superb Skype calls in the same day in her classroom is the “weekly read” for this episode. Check it out, and tune in on Saturday!
My recent post “Skype Virtual Guest Speakers and Collaboration wiki” is among many suggestions for post-show follow-up reading. Peggy and I are scheduled to address the following questions:
- What are some of the ways Skype has been used in the classroom with students?
- What stories or examples can you share of ways Skype is being used by educators to collaborate?
- What has been your favorite or most memorable experience using Skype?
- What pitfalls and setup issues should an educator take into account when collaborating using Skype?
