Our teachers are starting to use Skype. Skype is a free online communication tool. You can IM (text) phone call (voice) and/or video (voice and visual) communicate with anyone anywhere in the world for free. We have used it to video conference with professionals from around the world i.e. bring professionals right into our classrooms, and we have used it to communicate within our district. check out www.skype.com for more.
