This morning Mrs. Tinker’s class got a chance to do something seriously cool: Skype with one of their classmates who is in India!
For those of you who don’t know, Skype is a program that allows you to make video telephone calls to anywhere in the world for free. And it’s instantaneous! So while it was period 1 (or 8:30 am) in 2JT, it was about 10:30 pm in India where Avi was. The boys got to ask him questions like what kind of transportation he had taken to get there and what the weather was like, and allowed Avi to feel like he’s still here at St. George’s, even though in reality he’s on the other side of the world. The class is going to video-call Avi again on Monday, and we’re excited to hear about all of his adventures.
