How can I explain SKYPE to my class of 7 year olds?
My first graders have started exploring how communication methods are best suited for different purposes and audiences. We run an inquiry approach to learning and the children want to know how Skype works. Whilst they are off at the library and interviewing others, it was my job to ask on Yahoo! We would all really appreciate any help you can offer us.

For seven year olds, I'd say "It turns the sound into computer data and sends it through the internet". You really want to try and explain the gory details of VoIP to elementary school kids, some of whom are still struggling with basic maths and writing?
