Thing #3 - Skype

Skype Reflection

  Teaching third graders poses a challenge sometimes with technology.  Many cannot type well, so it takes them quite awhile to communicate this way.  However, there some ways I think Skype would be beneficial for them.

·         Meet the Author:  There are many authors that will chat with students via Skype.  Students will have the capabilities to ask questions in real time.
·         Virtual Field Trips:  Once again, there are many organizations that work with schools to provide virtual field trips that go with the curriculum being taught
·         Student Collaboration:  Collaborate with other classes on projects
·         Teacher Collaboration:  Teachers collaborate and gather ideas from other teachers around the world
