Maria Colussa assembled her PLN from Hello Little World to tell #learning2gether about her idea for mystery location Skype calls between classrooms of students. It's a simple idea that rocks with students in an online community. Here you can find the YouTube recordings of two of Maria's presentations on the topic and a downloadable mp3 rendition of this one. Enjoy, http://learning2gether.net/2015/05/31/learning2gether-with-maria-colussa-about-mystery-location-calls/
