The big education news over the weekend was that Skype launched it’s “Skype in the classroom” website which is now ready for use!

skype

The new free directory promises to make it easy to connect with educators around the globe that are interested in using skype to connect with guest speakers, set up language exchanges, and facilitate class discussions no matter how far apart the classes may be.

And we know this will be successful judging by the thousands of educators each month that visit our own ‘Skype Other Classrooms‘ page – one of our most popular resources for sure!

It only took us about 3 minutes to add ourselves to the directory. Once you submit your class, you can search by location, age, and topic. The filtering in the directory looks great!

Leave a comment below if you register for the site so fellow Edublogs users can more easily find you. :)
