Attendees will be introduced to Skype in the Classroom which will lead into an overview of Mystery Skype and Mystery Number. We will highlight how each of the games and Skype in the Classroom allows classrooms to connect with others to build on our knowledge of the world around us and to amplify the importance of connecting for the greater good. We will end the session with a live Mystery Skype with someone in the US or even abroad!
The participants will learn about how to get started with Skype and games such as Mystery Skype and Mystery Number. I will share tips and tricks, and then we will wrap up the session by participating in a game of Mystery Skype in real time. About 1/4 of the presentation will have a focus on the how and why, and then the remainder of the time with playing a game of Mystery Skype. This will give attendees an hands-on and authentic experience about this awesome and meaningful tech integration.
