Skype reading

Reading Mortamer by Robert Munch to the grade 3 class in Thompson was a cool expiriance. It was fun to see the kids faces when they got to use something typically used for fun as an educational tool. It was also cool to see how we can incorporate modern technology into education. Not only things like reading to kids we've never met before through Skype but it also relates to things like blogging and such. This class an this expiriance has opened my eyes to how modern technology and social media can be used for education as well as entertainment.

  1. Hi,

    This is Ms. Bettess, the grade 3 teacher. I am glad you are seeing the value of Social Media as an educational. Both Ms. McLauchlan and I love using it in our classrooms. We love connecting with our classes and we just tweeted with Canadian Olympians. Thank you for reading to us. My students loved it.
