SKYPE in the Classroom and GRANT

Skype in the Classroom

A free community to help teachers everywhere use Skype to help their students learn. It’s a place for teachers to connect with each other, find partner classes for all content areas and share inspiration.
This is a free global initiative created in response to the growing number of teachers using Skype in their PK-12 classrooms.

  • Collaborate on projects

    Projects are a way for teachers to find partner classes, partner teachers or guest speakers for a specific learning activity. You can create your own project or find one where your help is needed.
  • Connect with other teachers

    Use the directory to find like-minded teachers all over the world. You can search by keyword or explore the directory by ages taught, a teacher’s location, or subjects of interest.

  • Discover new teaching inspiration

    The resource section of Skype in the classroom is stacked with videos, links and tips. Add resources of your own or favorite the ones you like best to create a huge, shareable library of teaching ideas.

  • Skype and Clorox Power a Bright Future for students in the US.
    Nominate your school for a grant of up to $50,000.

    You are invited to nominate your school for a chance to win a $50,000 grand-prize grant or one of four $25,000 grants to help give your kids the power to grow and transform through playing, creating and exploring—the pillars of education inside and outside the classroom. Clorox is giving $150,000 to help schools nationwide, and now for the program’s third year it’s easier than ever to nominate deserving schools.
    All you have to do is visit to nominate either a new or existing program in one of three categories (Play, Create or Explore) before October 17, 2011.
