Mystery Skype

About this Skype lesson

Mystery Skype is one of those ideas I wish I had thought because it just so fun but instead I was lucky enough to hear about it from Caren MacConnell. The concept is simple: classrooms Skype call each other and try to guess where the other classroom is located either in the United States or in the world.

On the day of the call, students use their resources in trying to figure where the other class is calling from via Skype. To get a more detailed description and how to do mystery skype please visit this blog post: http://www.pernilleripp.com/2011/10/so-you-want-to-do-mystery-skype.html

Would love to participate in a Mystery Skype session with any classroom outside of Canada! My students are 11-12 (Grade Six here). I would be particularly interested in participating in a session with a francophone classroom. My students are beginning French speakers. I can be extremely flexible with dates/times. My time zone is GMT -330 (Newfoundland). Thanks!
