Skype für Lehrerinnen und Dozenten

Rund ein halbes Jahr gibt es nun das Skype-Netzwerk für alle, die im Bildungssystem tätig sind. Der Stand der Dinge:

Skype selbst beschreibt die Initiative folgendermaßen:

"Skype in the classroom is a free community to help teachers everywhere use Skype to help their students learn. It’s a place for teachers to connect with each other, find partner classes and share inspiration. This is a global initiative that was created in response to the growing number of teachers using Skype in their classrooms."

In einem Interview mit Mashable antwortete Tony Bates, der CEO von Skype, auf die Frage "What does video chat have to do with education?":

"The education process is moving beyond the traditional classroom/lecture setting. More and more teachers are seeking tools and techniques to engage their classes and enrich their lessons. Video calling is one of these tools, as it removes barriers to communication and lets students move beyond the boundaries of their classrooms. With Skype video calling, teachers can provide their students with first-hand knowledge from experts around the world and with other classes who are studying the same subject halfway across the world."

Skype ist mehr als kostenloses Telefonieren. Probieren Sie es aus...
