Just received this tip from Bob Dixon via several listservs. CBS did a story on virtual field trips that is nice and concise and features several content providers we’re familiar with. Great student quotes too.
The clip also features Jody Kennedy, who has written several articles about videoconferencing. These are the ones I know of.
- Howard-Kennedy, J. “Middle School Videoconferencing Fosters Global Citizenship.” Converge. July 2004. (Web archive link)
- Howard-Kennedy, J. “Videoconferencing in Education.” Technology and Learning. January 1, 2005.
- Kennedy, J., and Wiener, S. “Interactive Videoconferencing: Planting the Seeds for Global Learning and Caring.” Global Nomads Group. September 2005.
Content providers featured include Mote Marine, Reef HQ in Australia, and the Center for Puppetry Arts. The clip is only three minutes long and perfect for workshops and training sessions. Check it out!
