This was my first experience using Skype in the classroom and we had a wonderful experience! We just want to say thank you to Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop for his conversation and for teaching us all about the Arctic. It was especially neat when we got a panoramic view outside the window! Thank you and looking forward to future Skype lessons.Flag report
It was my first experience with SKYPE education, and I was very impressed. We had a session with Jamie, and he gave us a good overview of the science and also gave us good insights into life in the Arctic. It was amazing to see him turn the webcam on his laptop around so we could see the Arctic landscape from his window. There were lots of pre-SKYPE activities and information in the way of photographs and videos. We also did a dry-run to give students an idea of how the SKYPE session would work. The students who did attend voluntarily were obviously interested in the experience. However, our students are learning English as a foreign language and for some it was the first time to interact with a native English speaker, so most were too shy to actively participate. As teachers, we have to provide more opportunities for them to feel comfortable in using their English in real communication.Flag report
