Skype Activity Encouraging Learning without Borders

Microsoft is encouraging teachers and students to celebrate global learning by joining the Skype-a-Thon mission to travel 3 million miles over Skype on November 29 and 30. Participation involves three easy steps: (1) Register for the Microsoft Educator Community. From there, set up your profile with your call availability and let other classrooms know you’re participating. (2) Find a classroom or expert to connect with over Skype on November 29 and 30. The site suggests ways to connect with classrooms around the globe during this year’s Skype-a-Thon, ranging from playing Mystery Skype to taking a virtual field trip or hearing from a guest speaker. (3) After selecting a Skype-a-Thon activity, schedule a time between November 29 and 30 to connect. For more information, check out the Skype-a-Thon Quick Start Guide. After the event, post a creative photo on Twitter showing the distance your class traveled. Tag the photo with #skypeathon so everyone can see how your call helped reach the goal of 3 million virtual miles.
