Skype: Bring the world into your classroom
Discover TeachersFirst 3.0 to explore and energize your classroom through the use of Skype. Participants will view and explore resources for understanding and learning about Skype as well as explore ideas for immediate and future classroom activities. A question/answer period will be available to help with individual questions. It’s OK2Ask™.

As a result of this session and through individual follow-up, teachers will:
•	Gather ideas by exploring 6-10 Skype resources located on TeachersFirst.
•	Investigate and discuss lesson ideas offered in the reviews and by other teachers in this online session.
•	List possible curriculum-related projects or activities that students could do in his/her classes using one of these resources.
•	Explore and practice with the resource(s) of choice.
•	(follow-up) Plan and implement a student-centered, curriculum-related use of the resource(s) of choice as part of an upcoming teaching unit.
