Skype Reflection

Schedule and conduct a synchronous video meeting using Skype with one or more classmates.

Blog Post: Post a reflection of your experience. List potential instructional situations where 
synchronousmeetings would lead to innovative or improved learning experiences for your students. Post comments to two new colleagues' blog posts.

I have been using Skype and also FaceTime with many of my dancing colleagues for sometime now.  There are many times I have a question about a certain technique and talking over the phone is just not as helpful as visually seeing it done.  In the future I could have my girlfriend in New York who is a company member of Lehrer Dance actually teach a master class to my students via Skype or FaceTime.


  1. That's awesome. My family is dispersed over the country and we have managed to stay connected via FaceTime. There really is no substitute for video conference when face-to-face interaction is not possible.

  2. I agree. Having someone demonstrate a concept or implementation of something you have taught can be helpful to students in understanding the "how" and "why" of what they are learning from real-life examples.
