Hey teacher, are you a SKYPE user? Let's get connected and learn from each other! My SKYPE ID is teachersol and I have my online status on the right sidebar of this blog.

My colleagues from other school districts have been using this to collaborate for professional development. I have been invited several times to join in but my old webcam was not always functioning at its best. Thanks to my hubby for a new HP multi-media laptop with a built-in webcam, he's the best!

For those who have heard about SKYPE the first time, I have embedded below a presentation from the 2009 conference. To extend this technology to the education field, I believe that this is a great way to do web conference/ webinars at no cost at all! This is also another means to get our classes connected and to collaborate with other teachers across the globe.This is awesome!

So what are we waiting for? SKYPE me!
