These are the PollEverywhere results from the survey I shared this morning during the opening session of the 2011 Mississippi Educational Computing Association annual conference. Isn’t it amazing to see how many countries educators are connecting to from home today? This same experience of international, synchronous collaboration needs to become a REGULAR learning experience in our classrooms as well.
For an outstanding, free presentation about using Skype in the classroom, see Sylvia Tolisano’s 2009 presentation for the K-12 Online Conference, “Around the World with Skype.” It’s also available in Spanish as “Alrededor del Mundo con Skype.”
