Skype in the works

The thought of having a Skype session with someone who cannot physically be in the classroom but who could add to students' understanding of a subject has been tucked away in my brain for a couple of years now. It came forward in a moment of madness when I e-mailed someone to make the request.

I have since worried about technical difficulties, but I'm not even there yet. Right now there are scheduling difficulties, but I hope they can be ironed out. I am balancing a desire to provide my students with an experience that I think will be beneficial with feelings of being loathe to impose on someone that I don't really even know.

More on this in weeks to come...


  1. I say go for it! Set up a practice Skype session with a friend after school before the actual day to get the feel for it. Also consider joining the Catholic School Connect wiki for future connections.

  2. Sounds great, Barb, thanks! I've already sent in my request to join.
