Friday Faces: Day Nursery students chat via Skype

A three-year-old student at the Day Nursery Hendricks County center takes his turn with his Skype pen pals at Day Nursery Northwest.

This is how the Hendricks County Day Nursery students see their friends in Marion County during their chat. The small box in the upper right hand corner shows what the other students can see of the Avon class.
Students in Avon enjoy their turn talking to friends via Skype.

Students from two Day Nursery classrooms separated by the Marion/Hendricks County line have put a modern-day twist on making new friends by corresponding with pen pals.  Because the preschoolers are just learning how to write, the classes of three-year-old students keep in touch via video chat on Skype.  Teacher Matt Miller, at the Day Nursery Hendricks County Early Care and Education Center in Avon says his students were most surprised to find how similar their classroom was to the one lead by Shanna Nowosielski at the Day Nursery Northwest Center. “Their latest Skype chat was filled with back and forth questions about their favorite learning centers in each classroom.”
