 Video Conferencing
Bringing experts into your classroom is great. But sometimes it's really cool to connect classroom-to-classroom. Students can work on a project together or present the results of their research, their writing or art. World language students can work on their communication skills. Mock trial teams can scrimmage. Even the youngest students are eager to talk with other students about their schools, their communities and their lives.
