About the session: This session will look at the use of videoconferencing, mainly with skype, to connect students beyond their existing classroom.
For five years, skype has been a tool used by Anne Mirtschin for both personal and educational purposes.

The session will be tailored to meet the needs of participants, but it can include the following:-
- How to get started and use basic features of skype
- Hardware required
- The advanced features of skype:- sending files, creating groups, using groups for powerful connections and collaboration
- How to find projects and people on skype
- How to get the best value out of skype for your classroom and students.
