Summary

VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology is revitalizing business communication by enhancing collaboration, mobility and productivity in the workforce. VoIP video calling also has found its way into the classroom to enhance learning.

U.S.-based nonprofit Think Elephants International recently used Skype video calls to bring live elephants from Thailand into New York City public school classrooms. According to a post on blogs.skype.com, Video Calling with Elephants, the TEI research team developed a comprehensive conservation education curriculum that was piloted in 2011. Here is an excerpt:

The project culminated in a collaborative research experiment between middle school pupils, their teachers and the TEI research team. TEI has since had the opportunity to share their curriculum with many other classes, giving children around the world an up-close-and-personal encounter with the elephants — while promoting their conservation.

VoIP technology is on the cutting edge of collaborative communication – whether in business, school, or at home. VoIP also is on schedule to become the predominant technology for phone service. It’s time everyone starts the migration to VoIP. After all, the elephants are doing it.
