Project Description

Skype in the classroom is a free service for teachers that allows them to collaborate with each other, bring guest speakers to their classrooms, and take children on virtual field trips.

Skype in the classroom removes classroom walls and unlocks learning experiences that would otherwise not be possible due to distance, access, and budget barriers.

There’s 100k teachers using Skype in the classroom globally in over 240 countries and territories.
