Skype is a great tool. It can help students and teachers because it is a free voice or video call on your computer. Teachers can skype other classrooms. This way students can connect with others from anywhere, instead of just the same people in class everyday. Students will be able to learn more and it'll expand students education. Skype is also good for other reasons beside education. While typing an essay on your computer, you could quickly call someone in your class if you had a question. I think skype is a great way to connect.
