Skype recently previewed Skype Translator in two elementary schools–one in Washington and one in Mexico City. Using this service, students are able to speak in their native language to students across town or across the globe; their words are translated and then spoken in the receiving students’ language. This exciting innovation will certainly break down the language barrier to enable students to collaborate with peers from around the world.
As an educator, how could you use this new service with your students?
