Skype Performs a First!

Tags: , , ,

Here is a video of a world first:

The widely used and widely known communication company, Skype and the equally renowned children’s hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, have teamed up together this Christmas to perform a world first. Skyping a live theatre performance of J.M. Barrieā€™s Peter Pan from Llandudno in Wales to the families in the hospital.

A wonderfully heart-warming act in the run up to Christmas, the GOSH audience were able to experience the pantomime as if they were actually sitting in the audience themselves. They were addressed by the cast members and were able to respond too.

The initiative was well received and I can’t imagine it will be long before Skype becomes a regular feature of classrooms, hospitals and other learning environments where children will be able to benefit from this type of interaction.
