Description

Internationalising the Curriculum with Skype in the Classroom

We know that schools that make internationalising an integral aspect of their teaching and learning are better placed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and attributes required to thrive in a globalised world. - Internationalising Schooling, DET Victoria

What is Skype in Classroom?

Skype in the Classroom is an online community that enables thousands of teachers to inspire the next generation of global citizens through transformative learning over Skype. We offer you to five exciting ways to bring the world into your classroom: Virtual Field Trips, Skype Lessons, Skype Collaboration, Mystery Skype and Guest Speakers

What will I learn?

You will learn how to access the Skype in the Classroom community and start using the various resources available to teachers and schools. More importantly, you will learn how easy it is to make authentic, genuine connections with teachers and classrooms around the world, bringing them into your classroom. You will see the Skype Translator Tool in action and discover how other schools here in Victoria are internationalising their curriculum with Skype right now!
