The Learning Journey
We learn and grow and are
transformed not so much by
what we do but by why and
how we do it. -Sharon
Salzberg
Issue 17, January 30, 2012
Do you Skype?
Skype (a FREE video-conferencing tool) is becoming a great
tool to stay connected with friends and family that are far away.
I know my sister loves her weekly Skype sessions with her
three kids in college. I hear others love the tool to stay in touch
with grandkids!
Skype is also a great tool in the classroom. Classrooms around
the globe are connecting with each other and learning from
each other. You will find a few resources on the next page.
Suggestions if trying Skype for the first time:
 Skype with the classroom across the hall before skyping
across the world. This will help you become comfortable
with the process.
 Skype with family or friends.
 Find the support of someone who has used Skype.
(Kathy Perret would love to help teachers at Leeds and
Whittier who are interested in pursuing this idea.)
“Today you are YOU, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than YOU.”
Dr. Seuss
Welcome new readers!
This newsletter is something I write for
my two schools: Leeds and Whittier.
It is my understanding that this
newsletter will be forwarded to other
schools in the district. I hope the
resources shared each week are
helpful.
Kathy’s Schedule:
Monday, January 30, 2012 – Leeds all
day. Demonstration scheduled.; Whittier

  • 1. Kathy Perret, Instructional Coach – http://kathyperret.net The Learning Journey We learn and grow and are transformed not so much by what we do but by why and how we do it. -Sharon Salzberg Issue 17, January 30, 2012 Do you Skype? Skype (a FREE video-conferencing tool) is becoming a great tool to stay connected with friends and family that are far away. I know my sister loves her weekly Skype sessions with her three kids in college. I hear others love the tool to stay in touch with grandkids! Skype is also a great tool in the classroom. Classrooms around the globe are connecting with each other and learning from each other. You will find a few resources on the next page. Suggestions if trying Skype for the first time:  Skype with the classroom across the hall before skyping across the world. This will help you become comfortable with the process.  Skype with family or friends.  Find the support of someone who has used Skype. (Kathy Perret would love to help teachers at Leeds and Whittier who are interested in pursuing this idea.) “Today you are YOU, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than YOU.” Dr. Seuss Welcome new readers! This newsletter is something I write for my two schools: Leeds and Whittier. It is my understanding that this newsletter will be forwarded to other schools in the district. I hope the resources shared each week are helpful. Kathy’s Schedule: Monday, January 30, 2012 – Leeds all day. Demonstration scheduled.; Whittier PD Tuesday, January 31, 2012 – Leeds all day. Demonstration scheduled. Wednesday, February 1, 2012 – OFF Thursday, February 2, 2012 – Whittier all day, 2 demonstrations scheduled. Friday, February 3, 2012 – AEA all day
