With the new school year beginning, Skype has opened up registration for its very fun and unique Mystery Skype program!
With this program, two registered classrooms are connected via Skype and the aim of the game is to figure out where each other is located, 20 Questions style. Not only does this give your students a hands on approach to using geography, but it also opens up the possibility of future pen-pal communications between the two classrooms.
Prior to this year, Mystery Skype was something that was, in theory, open to anyone and left to the individual involved to organize. With the increase in the program’s popularity, Skype is starting a new community just for schools. The program is open to all classrooms and teachers can register HERE to be notified when it is up and running (soon!).
