Session Abstract

Until the advent of the I2 SEGP initiative, museums, universities and K12 schools were disconnected members of a common community. Museums, galleries and science/cultural centers and schools now have access to I2 mega-bandwidth. This is changing the way teachers motivate students and enrich lessons. The ability to share resources: content, people and artifacts, is creating the ?Virtual Fieldtrip? (VFT) experience. Using a videoconference endpoint enables students to travel the world and supplement their studies with interactive lessons and collaborative engagements that have no limits! Attend this session to discover which organizations are engaged in this digital delivery of content, observe a VFT, and meet education leaders that do these interactive distance lessons every day. While distance classes and VFT?s are becoming more common in K-12 schools, a new development using high-speed synchronous distance learning is rapidly creating a buzz. Discover how advanced networking, videoconferencing and online collaborative tools are bringing together groups of students in various geographic areas to work on projects of mutual interest. Examples will range from simple collaborative projects to more far-reaching national and international community building projects.
