The world we live in requires schools to address new kinds of literacies in addition to basic literacy. New literacies include media, information, intercultural, digital citizenship, ethical and network literacies, and skills such as communication and collaboration. Skype is one tool that can be used to successfully integrate these literacies and skills in different subject areas, as well as at all grade levels. Session will address strategies on how to find and contact possible partners and explore other ideas on using Skype in the classroom, and will use an example project “Around the World with 80 Schools” to explore the benefits and challenges of connecting students to the world.
