First-grader Gideon Egan, who has a joint and muscle disease that limits his physical mobility and sometimes calls for surgeries with extended recovery time, is using Skype to stay connected with his teachers and classmates at Campbell Ridge Elementary School in Alexandria, Ohio. Through the video chat program, Egan can answer student questions and participate in spelling tests. "I think it means a lot to them," special-education teacher Emily Knight said. "And it opens up a whole new world for them and Gideon."
