Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The aim of the game is to guess the location of the other classroom by asking each other questions.
It's suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science.

“I think the big thing is letting the kids take control. Have one of the students act as the teacher and one as the supervisor to ensure that the call goes well. This allows them to take ownership of the process. I am only the spectator during Mystery Skype. That, for me, is the biggest thing.”Pernille Ripp, 5th grade teacher, Middleton, Wisconsin
