The countdown to this year’s Skype-a-Thon has begun. Nearly half a million students and teachers around the world are getting ready to connect beyond their classrooms via Skype to travel 14 million virtual miles. They’ll talk with guest speakers and other schools and take virtual field trips to exciting places across the globe. This 48 hour event event celebrates the power of global learning and unlock the potential for all children to learn.
Participating helps open the hearts and minds of your students and create empathy for one another. By sharing song and dance, cultural traditions and stories, and seeing places and things they could never physically travel to visit, children expand their perspectives about the world.
