Planning Interactive Collaborations

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure of speaking with several Bucks County educators via Elluminate about planning interactive videoconference collaborations - - despite schools being closed because of the snowstorm. The lucky participants have all received LifeSize videoconference gear through a grant initiative at their IU, and are looking forward to breaking it out of the box to provide meaningful exchanges for their students.

Not only did these educators ask some wonderful, thought-provoking questions about using interactive videoconferencing in the classroom, they started brainstorming some very exciting projects! I'm looking forward to seeing some virtual stock market game exchanges and others.

Here are a few links that we discussed yesterday:
And here's the power point presentation I put together. Hope it's helpful!
