Skype in the Classroom

Skype recently announced the launch of its free directory for teachers who want to use Skype to bring education to life in their classrooms.

Skype in the Classroom is a free community to help educators 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.

Califone offer four categories of audio-visual products to help teachers and students use Skype; computer peripherals, classroom audio systems, headphones and headsets and jackboxes.
