Check out This site lists tons of great opportunities for video-conferencing in the classroom and allows teachers to leave feedback on the experience. Completely free to register and use the resources. Video conferencing really is an outstanding way to bring the world into your classroom and give your students experiences they might not otherwise have. This is what we are talking about when we speak of 'communication and collaboration'!
