It's suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science.

“My kids change their Mystery Skype jobs depending on what they want to do during the call. I keep a record of who did which Mystery Skype job for the first five calls to make sure they try different roles. Afterwards the kids pick their jobs when I call their names.”Pernille Ripp, 5th grade teacher, Middleton, Wisconsin
