Skype is the favorite tool of Ouarda Amid (Morocco)
The platform Skype In The Classroom put us in contact with peers from all over the world.

Skype is the favorite tool of Darina Poljak (Serbia)
Skype is a tool that we have used at school since 2011 year, when we bought interractive board. Th main reason for using was my student, Aleksandar Nedeljkov, who coudn't come to school because of his illness... it was beginning. Now, we use this tool also for collaboration, for exploring, for communication with other schools.
