Lerryn using Skype to interact with other schools. 28 Feb 2012

In Lerryn class, we have been looking at different places in the world for our geography work. To support this, we have been emailing a school in New Zealand as well as an urban school in Somerset about the differences and simlarities of their school compared to ours.

Today, we used Skype to interact with the school in Somerset. Prior to the video conversation we prepared questions to ask the children from the other school. In return they also asked many questions. Following the video call we spoke about how their setting is different to ours. Next, we are going to prepare a video using an iPad about our school and send it to them.

The children thoroughly enjoyed this and we look forward to contacting them again.
