A Mystery Skype is a great way to connect your classroom with another classroom from around the country or world. Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The aim of the game is to guess the location of the other classroom by asking each other questions. It’s suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science. I think this is an exciting option, really opening classrooms up to the rest of Australia and also the world, once you get your Skype set up sorted out.
This is definitely something I want to find more, particularly our year 4 connecting with indigenous students.
