Skype in the Classroom takes a bow during anniversary week

As Skype celebrates its 10-year anniversary, its role as an educational tool stands out.

Skype’s education program, Skype in the Classroom, allows children to experience events from around the globe, from the top of Mt. Everest to the bottom of the sea. Skype makes it possible for students in China to practice language skills and share customs with their peers in Chicago, and for NASA scientists to show students firsthand how to prepare a space vehicle for takeoff.

More than 66,000 teachers around the world use Skype to make learning more engaging for their students, and to help students learn remotely when they can’t make it to school. Head over to the Skype Social Good blog for more about the ways Skype helps teachers enrich learning for their students.
