Skype-a-thon

Year 6 participated in a Microsoft Skype-a-thon on 19 November, as part of a global Skype event that gives children opportunities to speak to, and interview, interesting people as well as connecting with classrooms around the world. 

The children interviewed Microsoft’s UK Public Sector General Manager Derrick McCourt about his role at the company, his life and his family. 

Then, through Office365, Yammer, SharePoint and OneNote class notebooks, they shared some of the work they’re doing on the initial design, prototype and market research phases of this year’s Global Enterprise Challenge. They asked Mr McCourt’s advice, from his experience as an entrepreneur, and his answers will help them when they begin the production and sales phases of the Challenge.
