Mystery Skype Sign-up
Mystery Skyping is one of many ways to use Skype to connect with other classrooms.
Two classes connect without the students knowing the location of the other class.
Students are assigned different roles to help detect where the other class is from.
Inquirers - Ask closed, geography based questions to the other class
Question Keepers - Type already asked questions and answers into a word processing document
Google Mappers - Use Google maps/other maps to zero in on location based upon the clues
Runner - Problem solver for other students/Take relevant information from group to group
Logical Reasoners - Use information to remove possible countries/states. They help narrow down the choices
Clue Keepers - Use paper maps to keep track of the information
Photographer - Take pictures of the event
Using these jobs, students collaborate to solve the location of the other class.
