Collaborative PBL

I am learning about Skype (like telephone over the internet kinda) and ways to use it in my classroom. Through a series of people, I got connected with a 5th grade AG teacher at Bolton Elementary here in Winston-Salem. Kathy Butler and I have emailed back and forth. At the bottom of my emails (in my signature) is a link to my website, where there is a bunch of stuff about PBL. She suggested that we have our classes do a PBL activity together. Skype will allow us to be in our own room with out own students, but they will be able to see and talk with the other class while we brainstorm, plan, and solve the PBL activity. I am getting excited about this opportunity.
