Educators: Catch up on highlights from Skype in the Classroom and Scholastic’s ‘Teach Graphix Week’

A few weeks ago, Scholastic partnered with Skype in the Classroom to launch the first-ever “Teach Graphix Week.” Thousands of students participated in a great learning adventure by interacting with some of their favorite Scholastic authors and illustrators to see how graphic novels are made.

“Teach Graphix Week” began with a live broadcast featuring the author and illustrator of Scholastic’s Dream Jumper series, and included Skype video calls between 10 Graphix authors and illustrators and classrooms around the world.

If your class missed out, you can still get a behind-the-scenes look at how graphic novels are made by watching the Dream Jumper broadcast together with your students.

To learn more, watch the video, and visit the Skype Blog.
