Carol, what a fabulous demonstration you are involving the school in! I'm in northern Arizona, with many schools I would classify as "profoundly rural" so I know what that's like. Unfortunately that situation often comes with a lack of bandwidth. Videoconferencing is going to take off here in AZ within the next year as we are all going to be able to join a new network created for schools and libraries with 100 mb connectivity! I am really looking forward to breaking these schools out of their little worlds and connecting them with the rest of the world!
Thanks for sharing your project! With Common core standards, we ought to be able to connect for lessons more and more!
Do others have similar examples to share?
