    Silvia,

    Thank you for providing such a comprehensive, clear introduction to powerful classroom uses of Skype, including tips on what can go wrong. I’m looking forward to sharing your video and links with teachers and administrators in my district.

  3. Thank you for an in-depth look at Skyping in the classroom. I’m trying to get a group of teacher-librarians from Manitoba, Canada interested in using Skype at a presentation in February. Would it be okay with you if I showed them your presentation. I particularly like the examples you give.
