I got to use Skype in my classroom for the first time yesterday! Laurel Martin was so kind to be our visiting artist for the day (she lives in Canada, so a plane trip was not an option!). We had some trouble with the "reception" and had to call several times to get it to connect, but eventually it worked out. She did such a wonderful job giving demos about different altered book techniques and lots of cool tips & tricks my students (or I) hadn't thought of. I can't wait for them to apply the techniques so we can send her pictures of the artwork.
Thanks again Laurel! It was awesome!
