Skype Sharing

Lee Baber’s eighth graders and my fifth graders shared experiences and ideas for about 40 minutes today. My class in Sparks, Nevada and her class in Virginia are pictured above projected on my ActivBoard. We shared how we have used Skype and technology to support our learning and how we might do so in the future. My students were shy and it was hard to get many to share their thinking or experiences. Lee had just about as much difficulty with her students that are early in their learning curve on using these tools. We both videotaped in our classrooms, so after editing we will post vidcasts of the session. When I have more time I will post more info about what was discussed. We debriefed afterwards and from those notes we will post to our blogs too.

Learning Is Mesy!

    Hey I think this is a great idea. I believe that the earlier students learn how to use the technology around us the better. Just from personal experience I wish I could have been able to learn how to use, what is now, modern technology.

    I think its a great idea to have students in different schools skype. I think it a good way to learn technology and get to know it for the future technology.
