Connect with others via Skype/FaceTime on a regular basis; share what you have in common. Connect every week or two. Discuss a book that you all read, stories you write, or share hobbies. Find what is in common. This could be done in real time or asynchronously by sending videos.

Hey Amy,

Neat idea. It makes me think about Skype in the classroom. Have you seen this? https://blogs.skype.com/tag/skype-in-the-classroom/

I also like the concept to help students connect to students of different backgrounds. Wondering if there might be a discussion guide built out that's specifically aimed at supporting students to build empathy with whomever is on the other side.

Thanks!
Emma
