HELPFUL SKYPE--HANGOUT Clues:
SKYPE and Mystery Hangouts offer terrific ways to expand class learning in fun and intriguing ways. Experts of all stripes are available using either program. However, when teachers outside the USA want a Mystery Hangout or a Skype session, the Global Time Zone Converter comes into serious play:
http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

Countries like Russia, India, Australia, Europe, and even the UK, can be out of a specific US Time Zone range—unless you don’t mind getting up at 2am for a Hangout or a Skype class visit. YIKES! So, if your class is far from US borders, it pays to make sure YOUR school can fit the Time Zone of the person you wish to Skype or Hangout with.

**PROSPECTIVE Teachers or Librarians):
When you email for a possible expert, also mention the CLOSEST MAJOR CITY to your school—The Time Zone Converter only lists major cities from each country.

**AUTHORS —and Others Wanting to Share Their Expertise in the Classroom: When you reply to a request, please INCLUDE the largest city that is closest to where YOU work from.

When both parties do this, it is easy to click on the Time Zone Converter link, add the largest city near you, PLUS that of the other party, and easily calculate if a Skype or a Hangout visit is feasible. . . or not!

I had such fun this past Thursday with a smart, very engaged 2nd- grade class in Alaska. And the teacher promised me PHOTOS! YEA!
They asked great questions, and it was a wonderful chance to connect with kids and let them know what goes on "behind the scenes" as a book is written. I love to HOOK Kids on Reading.
