How do you collaborate with Educators outside your school?
F2F as in workshops, meetings, conferences.
How about online? Social Networks like Ning, twitter, yahoo groups
Skype as a 21st Century Communication tool
Instant communication VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol)
Free calls from computer to computer
text chat / group conversations
Web-based application: Does not need a browser to run.
It is cross platform; Windows, Mac, Linux.
Will need microphone (webcam)
I would recommend a USB headset for best audio.
