Skype has announced a new initiative in response to the thousands of teachers who have been using Skype in classrooms! http://education.skype.com/
Skype in the classroom provides a collaborative environment where teachers can create an account to connect with other teachers, get new ideas for and collaborate on projects, and get plenty of tips and inspiration in their resource section.
Skype in the classroom is a free global community that invites teachers to collaborate on classroom projects where they might use Skype, and share skills and inspiration around specific teaching needs. Skype in the classroom is a great way for students to learn about and experience other cultures, learn new languages and collaborate on global projects, all without leaving the classroom.
