Virtual school visits using Skype
Peace One Day aims to make free education materials available to every school on Earth, inspiring young people to act on Peace Day – the 21st September.
As part of our partnership with Peace One Day, we’ve sponsored the creation of a lesson plan which promotes peaceful relationships through communication. The video above gives you a snapshot of a virtual visit by Peace One Day’s founder Jeremy Gilley to a school in Hampshire, UK as part of this programme.
Free Skype video calls are a great way to bring people into schools, universities and other learning environments – even when they’re cities or continents away. Other examples from around the web include these – a middle school class in Maryland, US speaking to Larry Lessig about remix culture, and my favourite, a pupil at a school in North Carolina, US who has been attending all of his classes remotely.
