I'm looking for a middle school class that would be willing to Skype with my 5th- and 6th-grade science students regularly (weekly? monthly?) throughout the school year. Ideally, I'd like each student to have a partner in another school. The partnered students could use Skype and Google aps (or a wiki) to complete some sort of collaborative project. I teach in the Central City area of New Orleans and would like to expose my students to people of different backgrounds and cultures. I have kids from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST every week day.
Let me know if you're interested or have any questions.
