iConnect to Home & Hospital Bount Students
April 29 and counting down to the Maryland Instructional Computing Conference MSET taking place in Baltimore on April 30th and May 1st. I am presenting on May 1st at the conference. The topic is “iConnect to Home and Hospital Bound Students” The session will cover what Prince George’s County Public Schools has done in the last year on keeping students connected to their teachers and classmates. We are using simple to professional level video conferencing tools. The simple tools are email, Instant messaging, websites and wikis. We are using Elluminate for virtual classrooms and Polycome for video conferencing. The teacher has video conferencing equipment in their room and the student can be connect live to the class room via the Internet at their home or in the hospital. Prince George’s County Public Schools services about 900 students a year who are home and/or hospital bound.
I will be posting the link to our presentation in a later post.
