Check out video below about Skype in the classroom.

The fourth web 2.0 tool that I would like to discuss is Skype. Many people, including myself, have been using Skype for years for personal reasons. With family members on the other side of the world, my wife and I both rely on Skype to keep in touch with them through audio and visual. As a teacher, I had not thought about using Skype in the classroom until recently. Obviously, the possibilities are endless in connecting with other classrooms or guest speakers. I suppose there is also potential for teacher to student communication outside of the classroom, but I would likely use Skype in this capacity myself.
