    Hello everyone,
    I am new to having iPads in the classroom. Will have 4 in a third grade classroom. I am looking for a few other classes to have FaceTime buddies. I am located in New York.

    Thanks,
    Wade

    I teach high school and middle school French and would like to collaborate by using Ipad 2 face time with another French teacher in the EST (Eastern Standard Time) time zone. Anyone interested?

    Hello,
    I'm a student teacher in a 5th grade classroom in Danville, CA. My master teacher and I would love to have FaceTime buddies from other classrooms. We would also like to have an expert guest speaker on FaceTime. Has anyone tried this before in a lesson?

    No, I have not heard of it in the classroom before. It is a great idea though. I am now thinking of doing just that sometime this year.
    We do student presentations (4th grade) that allow for guest speakers. How cool would it be for them to be at their place of work and show the kids around remotely? I have a projector hooked up to my ipad2 wirelessly via appletv2 so it would be on a projection screen rather than on their own ipads which they do not have.
    Thanks for the idea.

    I have recently received some ipads for my 3rd graders and would be interested in working with your class via FaceTime. Also check my music out on Edited by Moderator - No external links, please read the forum rules

    Hi there. What did you have in mind? I only have my iPad but may have one or more in the future this year.
    We could do a Q&A between the classes to get to know each other first as an icebreaker. In a few more months I may have many other classrooms available for you or other teachers to communicate with via FaceTime.

    Hi, i teach 4th grade in St Louis, MO. I was hoping to find someone that would like to Facetime and teach my students a culture lesson from where they are. From across the USA or other countries? Please let me know. I would love to get this going. My students as well as I would love to participate in this.

    Thanks John

    Hello, I teach at a school in Texas. I am the Technology Applications teacher. I also help teachers with using our available technology in the classrooms. We are a K-4th campus. We need a first, second, third, and fourth grade class to collaborate with at a moments notice. Ideally we would like to be able to have children facetime whenever the occusion arises.
