    • Technical Considerations
      • Quality sound & webcam – integrated with laptop or external?
      • Proxy settings – remember to adjust these for school
      • Check your Privacy settings
      • Always make a test call before the ‘real’ skype call.
    • Preparation
      • Start with small projects (become more familiar with skype)
      • Have a clear purpose in mind (learning objectives)
      • Will it be one-to-one students, small group, whole class?
      • Look to local connections also (cluster, VLN)
      • Students should practise asking ‘good questions’, having conversations
      • Have a plan for the conversation, key questions, information exchanges
      • Assign roles to students (next slide for egs)
      • Follow up important too:
      • Debrief
      • Emails
      • Online resources, sharing egwikispace
    • Image Langwitches
    • Online Etiquette
      • Always send a chat first before dialing in.
      • Take turns talking – will need active facilitation to do this (if more than 2 schools)
      • Watch ‘off camera ‘ behaviour - calling out, signing in the background, inattention etc
      • The people at the other end can see/hear you
      • Use mute when it’s not your turn to talk.
      • Good preparation is vital to smooth running of skype conversations
