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.

“Be honest with your students about being new to Mystery Skype, learn together and let them be a part of it. The more you let them be a part of it, the more they buy into it. The hardest part for teachers is handing control over to the students.”Katy Gartside, 5th grade teacher, New York City, New York
