Relationships and Partnerships: K/20 Update - "Cybermentoring", TVby Girls, and Virtual Surgery

Time 10/15/03 10:30AM-11:45AM

Session Abstract

This session will highlight several of the latest K20 Initiative projects:
--Students in Minnesota are taking part in exciting and innovative learning opportunities with students in other states through Internet2. The session will highlight IP Video projects that included students in Minnesota, Rhode Island, and Michigan as well as new projects underway through TIES. These include TVby Girls, Virtual Surgery, Career Exploration, and the discussion with experts through the Jason Project. Both teachers and students (if scheduling permits) will interact remotely with the audience and onsite presenter. The session will include lessons learned and tips for getting students involved in online collaborations. TIES is a non-profit consortium of K-12 school districts in Minnesota that supports education technology.

-- “Cybermentoring” is a word rooted in an ongoing cooperative project started at Washington State University and can be classified as a form of online collaborations for K-20 settings. Cybermentoring serves diverse K-20 students and infuses scientifically tested educational practices into curriculum and instruction in public, private, tribal, and home schools throughout Washington State. This demonstration and discussion, using multipoint connections via the Internet2 network, will showcase a live cybermentoring event involving preservice teachers and students.
