Skype calls to China

video conf


This week we had our first Skype conference call with Amy an English teacher at our sister school in China. It was a real buzz to talk in real-time with someone so far away from the comfort of my office. I was able to project her call on my whiteboard so the next conversation others might join in.

We learned Skype is not a common communication platform for schools in China but Amy did a great job and the call was a success.  We were only 2 hrs in front and Amy was able to schedule the call between classes. We have planned a call next week with a few teachers to talk some more about common tasks we can ask our children to try.

I’m seeing some great possibilities ahead for student conversations.
