Skype is developing a new directory of teachers who are interested in using Skype in their classroom.

Here’s how they describe it:

There are lots of teachers out there doing amazing things with Skype. But many of them say their biggest obstacle is finding other teachers and classes to connect with.

We’re developing a free online directory to make it easy for teachers to connect with other teachers and resources from around the world. The directory will launch in December in English only.

Once you sign up with your Skype account and create a profile, you’ll be able to search for other teachers and classes by subject and region. You can also share inspiration and tips to help kids learn with Skype.

From today teachers can request an invitation to use the beta version of the directory. If you’re a teacher and you would like to be among the first to use Skype in the classroom, provide your email address and we’ll send you an invitation.
