Mystery Skype is a unique educational game that engages all age groups and applies to all curricular subjects. The objective of the game is to uncover the mystery of the other classroom by asking questions that encourage the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students work together to solve the challenge. As the game unfolds students begin to notice similarities with each other. They also become inquisitive about our differences. The genuine exchange between the classes as they play opens hearts and minds. Connecting our students with the world and promoting global citizenship builds a deeper understanding and empathy for other lifestyles and societies.
