Description

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

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.

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