Sarah Kessler wrote an article “Skype Launches a Dedicated Network for Teachers”
According to Sarah teachers already use Skype to connect with other classrooms around the world. Thanks to that application they are able to communicate (during the class) with other students or teachers somewhere else. This time Skype came up with the idea to create a additional form dedicated specially for teachers.
Using the platform, teachers can create profiles that describe their classes and teaching interests. They can also search a directory of teachers from all over the world by student age range, language and subject.
