What is Mystery Skype?
Mystery Skype is an educational game, invented by teachers, played by two classrooms on Skype. The aim of the game is to guess the location of the other classroom by asking each other questions.
It’s suitable for all age groups and can be used to teach subjects like geography, history, languages, mathematics and science.
