Video Conferencing Across the US

Steven Kimmi 4th grade teacher from Salina, KS

Hello all, I'm looking to set up a video conference with a classroom in all 50 states. We are a 4th grade classroom in Salina, KS. My district currently blocks Skype, so we use Tokbox.com. It is web-based, and would require no account our download for you.

We'd love to talk about your state, what it's like to live there and more.

Please leave a reply if you would be willing to help!

Right now I am to be moving to second grade, but if I get to stay in fourth I would love to participate. I'm in Florida.

I teach third grade, and we'd be interested -- perhaps a bit later into the year so that we can share what we've learned about Massachusetts history, if that's relevant.

Steven,

Check out this discussion group to find partners to collaborate with on a national level.

Most of them have Skype accounts, but I'm pretty sure they can use the program you are recommending.

Have you checked with your IT person at school about Skype? I know that my school blocks many programs, but once I mention it to our IT person, he finds a way to unblock it.

Good luck,

Elvira
