Skype in the Classroom

4 Mar

Mike Kimmel just forwarded me this link about Skype making a leap to the classroom. As kids get older, so does the chance of business technology creeping into classrooms. If you don't have a Skype account, then you don't know what you are missing. The streaming video technology turns your computer into a strong communication device.

Skype's tagline about their new classroom is, “Meet new people, discover new cultures and connect with classes from around the world, all without leaving the classroom.” What is interesting is that the latest iPad has a HDMI port based on feedback from teachers. Many teachers are now using the iPad in-conjunction with directly connecting it to in-classroom TVs. Maybe now Skype will make big waves in the class room culture?
