On November 29 and 30, educators and industry professionals from around the world will connect through video conferencing during this year's annual Skypeathon. This free, global event is a fantastic way for classrooms to break down the walls that surround them and open their imaginations to the infinite possibilities that exist when you reach out and work with others.
How do I participate in the Skypeathon with my students?
Participating in the Skypeathon couldn't be easier. First, visit Skypeathon.com and register for the Microsoft Educator Community. Even if you are not in an Office365 school district, this global community is an amazing resource to share and learn from educators worldwide.
The second step is to find other educators and industry leaders to Skype with and invite them into your classroom. There are several activities that you can participate in. Mystery Skype is one example of how two classrooms can play a “20 Questions” type of activity where they guess where in the world the other is Skyping with them from.
