Magic Moment

Skype in the classroom is a free community to help teachers everywhere use Skype to help their students learn. It’s a place for teachers to connect with each other, find partner classes and share inspiration. This is a global initiative that was created in response to the growing number of teachers using Skype in their classrooms.


Teachers and parents can also benefit from Skype in the classroom.

Next Steps:

  • Teachers use the lesson created/modified and reflect on its presentation and outcome
  • Teachers create another lesson using ISTE standards and Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy in meeting the CCSS.


Follow Up Suggestions:

  • Continue discussion at staff or department meetings of the ISTE standards and how to incorporate them in their lesson planning to help students meet CCSS.
  • Begin investigation into problem-based learning (PBL) which supports all: CCSS, ISTE, SAMR, and Bloom’s.
  • Have discussions at staff or department meetings about using Skype in the classroom and investigating the projects identified in the module.
