Shane Howard and Roxanne Glaser are the dynamic duo behind Whirlidurb.

Do you remember my research from last year?

One of the results was that schools who are using curriculum videoconferencing more have two essential external supports:

  • An organization offering and targeting programming to the school’s curriculum
  • Outside technical support for videoconferencing

In my research, this type of support was offered by an educational service agency, or by organizations like CILC, TWICE, etc. You can see the full list here.

Well now, you have another choice for bringing this type of support to your school. Guaranteed to generate increased use of curriculum videoconferencing in your school, and increase the best practices of VC in your school. I say this because I’ve partnered with Shane and Roxanne for 5 years, and I’ve seen the results in their schools.

So, if you’re in need of a boost to your VC program, or need help dusting off a unit in the closet that could be used to bring the world to your classroom, think about Whirlidurb.

Full Disclosure: Berrien RESA has a partnership with Whirlidurb and I am clearly a fan of Shane and Roxanne’s work.
