Have you ever wondered how to use Skype in the classroom? One of the many exciting ways is through an activity called Mystery Skype. In a Mystery Skype, two classrooms are connected, and through a series of yes or no questions, the location of the other classroom is discovered. The students do not know where the other classroom is prior to the call. A Mystery Skype promotes collaboration, critical thinking, and teamwork. Plus, they are fun!
