Skype is an amazing tool to break down barriers for our students in connecting with others to explore and learn. I have always used Skype for World Read Aloud Day, but this year we explored Microsoft Teams to make it easier on our infrastructure to connect. This made a huge difference for our teachers and volunteer readers because the learning curve wasn't too high. All they needed was the link! We were also able to record to share out later as well.
