SchoolNet free webinar 'Using Skype in the classroom' by Allan Hart on Thurs 23 February at 3:30pm

We are pleased to announce that our next free webinar, Using Skype in the Classroom will be held on Thursday 23 February at 3:30pm. Our speaker will be Allan Hart, a teacher at Appelby Preparatory in Elgin who will be talking about his use of Skype in the classroom. We would like to encourage you to use the free online video tool, Skype, in your classroom this year. One of the ways of doing this has become known as Mystery Skype. This is an interactive learning game where two classrooms use Skype and a series of questions to guess each other’s locations and find out more about each other. It is suitable for all ages, and gives kids an interactive way to build skills one question at a time. We will be using the Adobe Connect webinar platform for the webinar. Please join us as we hear about how Allan Hart uses Skype in his classroom.
