February 1, 2012 - Skyping with Pennsylvania

Filed under Presentations

Early last month, I received an exciting email from a school in Pennsylvania: their grade five classes were reading two of my books as part of their social studies unit on Canada, and they wanted to meet with me over Skype. Without having to factor travel and accommodation into the schedule, we soon fixed a date, and this week, I spent an engaging hour talking to fifty grade-five students on the other side of the continent without even leaving my desk chair. Technology really is amazing, isn’t it?
