5 Links, Sept. 9, 2013

Since the September EdTech Challenge focuses on Mystery Skype, I thought the five links I shared today would be related. Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The aim of the game is to guess the location of the other classroom by asking each other questions. It’s suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science. Check out the five links below.
