  • Today, just now, I made my first skype call! This is exciting. I skyped another teacher via a connection made through this site. We are only just beginning to plan for our classes, but already, I see new ways to […]

    • Hi Jarod,
      That was great speaking with you. I’m frustrated though because I tried to call you back just now and it kept saying “call failed”. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong. Ok well the time when you called was perfect for when we’re all set to work with the kids but for planning it would have to be after 2:30 or 9:30 or 12:45. Those are…[Read more]

      • Colleen,

        I will try to skype call ypu tomorrow at 9:45? Then, we can begin planning. Does that work? I was in Barnes and Noble earlier. I’m still off work unitl next week.

    I am still sort of new to this site and have been videoconferencing now, but I would like to do more and specifically internationally. I teach 9th grade Lit. in a small town in Georgia. Please reply if you are interested in interactions.

  • On Friday, Mrs. Murray and I had our second and third skype sessions. We again had meaningful conversations between classrooms and plan on having another session on Friday in which we will be sharing lessons learned. I am also planning on having a skype session with a new member to the site, Mr. Edwards. I [...]

  • It was a wondeful exepreicne to have my first skype videoconference session on Thursday with my class and Mrs. Colleen Murray’s  in NJ. We met here on the site and started collaborating via e-mail and videoconferencing. I was really excited as I introduced the idea to my class. Then, we tried to follow the model that [...]

    I did not get your first e-mail, but as you know, I just test called you. I will only be here until about 1. You can try to call then or we can try tonight around 8:30 when myself and family gets home. Yes, I am in Georgia, between Atlanta and Athens. Any interaction will be great at first, then we can refine the lessons later and reflect on what…[Read more]

    Great! I think that my 3rd block ( we are on the third block schdeule) would be the best to collab. with in the beginning. We have class from 11:45-1:06. It is a 9th grade english class, and we will soon be focusing on a Shakespeare unit and Romeo and Juliet. However, with writing and speaking standards, I could tailor it to many things. My main…[Read more]

    I think that would be great! I guess we should come up with a plan. I am currently off work for a week ( Intercession), but maybe we could just skype each other in the meantime. I h ave never skyped before. What subjects do you teach? Maybe, we could come up with a combined lesson plan. I defintely would like to collaborate. When would be a good…[Read more]

    I am new to this site and teleconferencing. I would really like to have the first teleconference with another classroom before the end of Februaury. I will be teaching Romeo and Juliet to 9th grade advanced and college prep. We are in a small town in Georgia between Athens and Atlanta. What does anyone think?

    • Hello,
      I am new to this as well and I teach freshmen and juniors in NJ but I would love some practice so if you’d like to skype let me know!

    • Great! I watched my daughter skype once but I feel I am definitely a novice. I teach world history to freshmen from 8:45 to 9:26 and United States History at 8, 10:30, noon and 12:45 (50 minute classes roughly). In world history we are about to learn about “the Age of Revolutions” and in US history we have been learning about the Cold War and are…[Read more]

      • not sure if my reply got to you but this sounds great. I have to tell you this time period is my basic class. I just hope it goes smoothly. I think they’ll appreciate it, they just tend not to be as strong academically as the other classes.I have my skype up and running so let me know when you’d like to try it out. I don’t have a smartboard, but I…[Read more]
