Sixth-graders at Kellogg Middle School in Idaho work collaboratively and use research skills while playing "mystery" Skype sessions with classrooms in other locations in the country, said teacher Angie Colburn. As they ask and field questions about the other school's "mystery" location, students are assigned tasks such as online researcher, question logger, videographer and map reader. "The kids really get into working together and figuring it out, collaborating and using their resources," Colburn said.
