Hi Lucie:

The web cam that I like right now is the Microsoft LifeCam (about 80$ right now at Staples):
http://www.staples.com/Microsoft-LifeCam-Studio-Webcam/product_923150  

The reason that I like it is because it has a tripod thread which makes placement of the web cam more flexible when on the tripod. Also does require a USB extender cable so that the cam be some distance from the computer.

Greetings all
With the increase in request for classrooms to participate in SKYPE in Education and LNV/Scopia opportunities for classroom teachers, we are trying to come up with an ideal setup for a classroom wanting to participate in these opportunities.  Would love to recommendation from anyone who has a successful model.
Which peripherals should we purchase to achieve the following outcomes

1) A Web Cam that we can point to different parts of the room
2) A microphone situation that might be separate than the webcam so it can also be moved to pic up a speaker from different parts of the room
3) Speakers that would work for a classroom (preferably a double classroom) -seems that many classrooms are doubling up for these event
4) SETUP config info that PROVIDES no feedback echo
5) Cost that fits in a classroom budget ;-(
-----
Looking to equip a PC, but if
someone can advise either PRO or CON on using an iPad for Skype events of this nature, that would be great.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated
