The purpose of this #Kinderchat PlayProject is to play in real time with other children in other places.  Building on traditional Skype projects like MysterySkype and Skyping in experts,  this moves into giving children a peer to peer audience for their play that provides immediate interaction, collaboration, and conversation. And so, a network of Kindergarten classes are connecting globally, building relationships, exploring geography, and discovering that while everyone might have their own place in the world,  we all love to play.

Fascinating!

Thanks Steve.  I sure appreciate the global community you foster here.  

Mardelle is ah-mazing! Her project is truly, truly exceptional in design, integration and implementation! 

There is a way to put all the locations in one "virtual room" now to...  Let me know if you think that would be usefull

This is a really cool idea.

Thanks : )  We have a group of Kinder teachers who certainly are loving it.
