Hi,

I am a k-8 computer teacher in Chicago and we have new 20" iMacs with iSight cameras and I am looking for other classrooms k-8 to video skype with some of my students. Topics can vary.

Hello everyone that replied!

October or November even won't be too late to start. We started in August so we're kinda settled in already.

I have access to all of the grades because I see all of the grades. If you would like to work with a class on your garde or above, just let me know.

I'm looking to do an intro activity to start so we all can figure out what we're doing:) A getting to know you mixer between the classes.

I would have all of my kids write 3-5 things about themselves to share that they could read to the camera and I can talk a little about our school and school day. Then your kids could do the same. This will allow us to try things out and work out any kinks.

I'm ready for this when anyone else is. Just let me know if you want to try it with your grade so I can have the kids get their info ready.

Thanks to everyone that responded! I can't wait to get started:)

Have you got any takers?
Nope, no replys yet.
Hi my names is Mike Litchman and I teach Elementary Computers K-5 in Rahway NJ. The state has created a new curriculum and wants our students to Skype and work with other students from all over the world. We only have one webcam and use Dell computers, but I am looking to get my students to communicate with other students from all over. I think an introduction activity would be awesome. My students seem very excited about the webcam and I would love to work with you with my older student’s grades 3-5.. I think starting in the middle of October could work out.
Mike that would be great! I'll start prepping my 3rd graders and I still have to set up a school Skype account for myself. I will email you my info when I get it.

We have iMacs with the iSight cameras in them already.

This will be fun:)

Would love to try it sometime, but don't really know where to begin. Technically in my county it is not approved software for me to use. I'll have to talk to the administration at my school and see if there might be a way around it and how we could get the funding to add some cameras to our laptop lab or even the regular lab. Let me know if you have any tips as to how to get started. We've got the computers and technology availble, just no webcams at the moment.
