I work in a K-2 school, and today we used Skype to meet with an author for the first time. Two kindergarten classes are collaborating with me to study alphabet books and then create their own. My students had generated questions questions about their writing, so we Skyped alphabet book author, Michael Shoulders. An absolutely wonderful experience - my 5 year old patrons were conferring with an alphabet book expert! Anyone else using Skype (or other video-conferencing) in conjuntion with your collaboration with teachers?
