3rd Grade students at HST have been reading stories about scientists and astronauts. In order to build background knowledge and deepen understanding, my students and I used Skype as a digital tool to connect with real life scientists. We spent time in class generating the questions the students were curious about. Each student chose a meaningful question that they would ask. It is evident that Skype technology gives students access to people around the globe, and encourages students to explore outside the classroom without leaving their chairs.
