Its a 10 on the “Cool Factor,” but also a 10 for student learning.  I’m talking about teachers using Skype to connect our students with their peers.  Today, Mrs Smith’s class “Skyped” with a class from Alabama to learn about each others states.  If you don’t know Skype, it is a great example of how technology can enhance student learning.  Students get to see and hear each other with the use of microphones and cameras.
