Mystery Skype!

Mystery Skype is becoming a popular activity now that more teachers are using Skype in the classroom.  Mystery Skype is a great ice-breaker for classrooms. Students can guess each other's locations and then share about their countries, cities, schools, cultures, etc.  These initial contacts can turn in to year-long classroom relationships that will promote sharing and collaboration.

Earlier this week, I was chatting with a group of educators on Skype Instant Messaging, and we came up with idea of creating a place where teachers can sign up to make connections. Teachers who are new to global collaboration and Skyping will be able to find contacts who are located world-wide. The list also includes experienced teachers who are willing to share their expertise. 

This project is a collaboration between members of The Global Classroom Project, Hello Little World Skypers, and the Global Virtual Classroom.  Please complete the form on any of these sites.
