Last January, Wesley Fryer and I were wondering on a Dr. Z Reflects posting, Finding Skype Connections for Your Classroom, where one would look to find experts/authors/interesting people to Skype into our classrooms.
Angela Maiers just tweeted about a new site, Skype an Author Network, unveiled by Mona Kerby and Sarah Chauncey that allows authors to post a page explaining how they could be Skyped into a classroom.
This is a wonderful idea that will go far. There isn’t an author on the planet who doesn’t want to share his/her ideas with kids and the public. That is why they write.
The interesting part of this site is that it is create on a wiki. I counted over 60 authors already and I am certain that the numbers will skyrocket in the near future.
Here’s wishing you good luck, Mona and Sarah. Classroom teachers around the world thank you.
