Educational Skype – Skype in the Classroom
Educational Skype is just a Skype used in the classroom. It always students to interact with other classmates and their teachers. It also allows them to interact and talk to people all over the world. If they were learning about something in Paris, they could Skype someone there in the classroom and talk to them over the computer. It lets them interact with the world without having to leave the classroom. It gives students the opportunity to learn more about the outside world and people and places they are not familiar with. It would really be good for the foreign language classrooms so they can talk to people in the area they are studying. The area that it would be under in Bloom’s Taxonomy would be knowledge. It has to do with people, videos/filmstrips. It also says that it has to do with locate, label, and identify.
