Well I have just completed my first two skype calls between Edinburgh and New Zealand tonight!
The first was with room 20 at Botany Downs School and the second was with room 5 at Waiuku School. The children and their teachers were absolutely brilliant and answered all our questions in lots of detail. I have recorded the calls using Call Recorder for skype so I can share the information with my class tomorrow as the time difference makes it impossible for the children to speak directly to each other as it is too late here.
My next step is to upload the video files into Glow so the children in my class can add comments and we can add some video response of our own to hopefully continue the conversation with our new friends. I am very excited about this project and look forward to further calls. Thanks you to Bridget Smith and Rachel Boyd for their support with this.
