This is my first year teaching and I am excited about all the possibilities that technology will open up for my students. As the year is winding down and testing is soon to be over I wanted to do some collaboration projects with other classrooms.

We have never used Skype with another class but my kids would love the experience.

I teach first grade and if there are any other classes out there that would like to help us out with this I would be greatly appreciative. We are a Title I school and our kids do not get out much. I am hoping this will open up the world outside of their backyard!!

My Skype name is mrmattallen

With skype you can do a conference call with chat but I think that it still only allows you to have two parties on a videoconference. I wish that they would change this too.
I have talked with with my son in Romania and friend in Chicago as a conference, but we weren't using video. I hadn't realized this might not be possible.
I didn't think it allowed video conferencing. Thanks!
I teach kindergarten and my students loved using Skype last year. We just did it in the district that I teach in, but would love the opportunity to see and talk to kids in other cities. My students were absolutely amazed even when we talked to kids on the other side of our own school building, I can't wait to see what they do when we talk to kids in another state. We start school mid August and would love to hear from your class. I teach in Derby, KS. Let me know if you are interested and I'll pass along my Skype name.
Thanks! :)
