New Skype Feature

Skype is a great way to connect classrooms together for global collaborative projects or Mystery Skype sessions. When using Skype with students it is important to ensure that all students have parental permission to be on camera and that you adhere to the campus/district Acceptable User Policy (AUP). Additionally, make sure all students have a job to do during the Skype session whenever possible.

If you have students that cannot be shown on camera or you are concerned about distractions in the background, Skype has a new feature that is great to use to reduce distractions or blur the faces of certain students. The new background blur feature is available and is a fantastic way to protect students’ identities or reduce any visual clues when participating in a Mystery Skype session.
