We are looking for a class to skype on regular basis we are going to produce digital stories based on current events. We would like to discuss with other kids our age what they think to get a global perspective.
I would be interested in something like this. I"m a beginner, but have a lot of tech support here. We are a suburb of Chicago. Would the time difference be an issue? My email is:
Hi Suzanne- I have a group of 11 5th grade students ages 10-11. Would this age be too old? We are new to this but would be interested if you are. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org We are in a small town in Alabama
I have a second grade class (7,8 year olds) - we have video conferenced with schools in NZ - NZ students started their day (8:00) - while we stayed after school (4:00) - we have used iChat and Skype - let's talk!
Are you still looking for grade 2 classes to connect with? Our grade 2 classes are setup for Skype. We produce digital stories as well. We would be interested in making a connection with your class. We publish our stories on blog sites. This allows for comments and discussions. Here is an example: htttp://blogs.jefftwp.org/wordpress/briggsschoolproductions
