Distance Learning Opportunities

How can you use video conferencing with your students? With each classroom equipped with computers and projection devices, the opportunity for students to "connect" outside of the classroom is more equitable. In addition, with the use of either Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts, connections within the classroom are now available. There are several ways to use video conferencing: connect with an expert or author, go on a virtual field trip to a museum or zoo, join a webinar for training or tutorials, collaborate with other students from within the district or abroad!

If you are interested in participating in a video conference, then all you have to do is the following:

1. Email the innovation leader for your grade level:
Elementary: Courtney De La Cruz, Brent Mischnick
Secondary: Kelli KelsoeAbigail Offenbaker

2. Ask for permission from your principals by email, forward your approval  or denial from your principal to your Innovation Leader.

3. Your Innovation Leader will then schedule and enroll your class for the Distance Learning Activity, reserve the Distance Learning Lab and send you, your campus secretary, and your administrators an Outlook Appointment.

*4. Make bus arrangements to transport your students if necessary (you need to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the presentation)

Many of the providers will also create a video conference presentation based on your needs for your students. Look at the Create Your Own Video Conference page to find out how to contact the different providers.
