Video Conferencing options for your Classroom

Friday, December 26th, 2008

Episode 22: Video conferencing options for your classroom. A chat with Julia from CILC and Kathleen from e-Missions about their varied videoconferencing offerings. We also listen in and interview teachers getting a first-hand experience with Operation Montserrat. You’ve heard of ‘controled chaos’ in the classroom?! Listen in to these teachers living the mission! (and you don’t always need a $10,000 video conferencing system to participate.)

Shownote Links:

e-Missions - Live Simulations for the classroom

Operation Montserrat - students simulation to evacuate an island besieged by a volcano and approaching hurricane.
