This video wouldn’t load for me at first but after about 3 tries, it started playing! These are elementary students skyping with students in Germany! They are practicinng speaking in English, German, and Spanish! I’m just wondering how did these two teachers connect? They sing songs, listen to each other and all of it is recorded on a flip camera so that students can look back and rediscover their learning over and over again. Wow! It’s just so neat to see it happen on video! I’m also wondering if maybe the teachers send each other scripts of the songs they will sing so that the students on the other end can see the words as well. I am just amazed at this technology and how incredibly engaged the students must be. Wow!
