Skype-a-thon November 28-29 2017
From the Twitter feeds it looks as though loads of teachers, museums and organisations will be doing some fun stuff with this. Looks good.
Skype-a-thon almost here!
I already use skype for class visits worldwide. I am a children's poet whose work goes out from my five internet websites and books into 188 countries of the world. I add voice recordings to many of my poems and this especially helps students for whom English is a second language, but I hope it also helps English speaking children to perform poetry much better than I've seen it done in the past. I will return to look at your Skype-a-Thon tomorrow. It looks good.
Are you registered with the MEC ? (https://education.microsoft.com/

No, I'm not. I have my own 5 websites, which I've struggled over the years to make and illustrate myself, as well as writing 1,350 poems for children. I skype into classrooms from there. Please do contact me and explain the links. I'm off to bed now but will go to these links tomorrow, and I'd love to hear from you. I love meeting the children who are using my poems in their classrooms and have made friends with many of the teachers too. It's so lovely to be back in a classroom where I feel at home.
India, USA and Egypt!
Anyone else taking part ?
