Skype's revolutionary (and free) education service uses Skype's video chat to open up education beyond the confines of classroom walls. SITC's global education community enables teachers from across the globe to connect with each other and allows schools to participate in lessons hosted by guest speakers and partners. It could be kids from a school in Dartford talking to a NASA Aerospace Engineer, or a class in Berlin sharing a History lesson with a class in São Paulo, both of which are awesome.

I'm looking to bring new partners with education programmes on board to connect with schools and universities across the world.
