Hadn’t thought of that when I wrote the Quick Start Tips For New Skype Users post but fortunately Mike and David Ashby did.

So how can we make it easier for people to connect? Well been thinking that I could set up another page on The Edublogger like the Check out These Class Blogs page but for educators wanting to connect with other classrooms via Skype.

So I was wondering if you could help me? Are you interested in connecting with other classrooms?

  16. I am the Technology Integration Specialist @ The International School of Belgrade in Serbia, and a New Zealander who has been on the road for close to 20 years. Here is our school website – http://www.isb.rs/

    ISB is interested in any synchronous or asynchronous collaboration with students anywhere. We are well-equipped with technology on our three campuses that span grades K-12. Our grades 3-8 (8-14 year-olds) have their own laptops. By 2012 our HS students will have theirs as well.

    Our students are from mostly from Europe and North America. If you have any ideas for collaboration or just global communication, I would be very happy to try and line you up with students and teachers here 🙂
