- I had a parent (who was stationed over seas in Afghanistan) Skype in for all plays, band & choir performances and class productions.
- For our school's "bump" day we could have each classroom be paired with a lower and higher grade level classroom to see where they will be next year and introduce them to some current students in the grade above them as well as the teacher. This will also help to minimize the schedule changes and logistical nightmare that this day has been in years past.
- It would be great to record lessons and send video messages of important lessons to students who were absent or to parents who want to know HOW we are teaching certain concepts (such as common core math).
- Parents could volunteer to Skype in and be the guest speaker on relevant topics that they are experts on. Parents could Skype in to the younger grades and do read alouds.
