Webcam for classroom

I need a webcam that will not only "see" the pupils in a group but will pick up their voices as well. Most microphones require the speaker to be close to it but I want to be able to pick up voices speaking from up to 3 or 4 metres away. Our last Skype call to a school in UK was difficult because we had to keep passing the mike from person to person and often the speaker did not hold the mike close enough.
I am sure I have seen a recommendation for a web cam that sits on a desk round which the speakers are arranged but I can't find it. Logitech's web site seems geared up to people who already have their equipment - the model & serial number are required in their email form. Microsoft's site gives much sales blurb on the video part but says little about the mike's capabilities
