My head of department is keen for us to make contact with schools abroad using video conferencing. I would be extremely grateful if anyone has any tips for how they have used this in the past, including the topics you have spoken about. My main concern at the moment is that there will be 60 camera shy teenagers and an awkward silence!! I appreciate that there are many issues with technology and compatability, but this question relates to topic areas / activities for use in a video conference between two classes. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!!
