Skype and DonorsChoose Partner to Connect Classrooms

HELPING HAND: Currently over 22,700 teachers from 187 countries have signed up for Skype in the classroom. But Skype's goal has always been to reach one million classrooms, and this can certainly help them get there: a partnership with to donate $250k for teachers requesting tech supplies to set up the video-calling service in their classrooms. (Skype has offered to match funds for some of these requests from teachers.) Also: a $25 DonorsChoice card to every teacher who signs up for Skype. Details on how you can support the program here.
