Using the Video Conferencing Unit

Eddie White

Every school in the district is equipped with a Cisco SX-20 video conferencing unit. This unit is a gateway to colleges, corporations, museums, and various learning opportunities for our students. It provides an excellent vehicle to truly extend learning beyond the four walls. Teachers and administrators should seek opportunities to collaborate with people in our district, state, region or even throughout the country.

In order to communicate with other schools within our district, you will need to use the IP Directory to find the address to other carts.  Please asks your media specialist for assistance.

Many schools have collaborated with NASA to provide real-world connections to science and mathematics lessons.  For more information about setting up a collaborative experience with NASA, visit the NASA distance learning website.  Here is video that details an experience with a class at Kemp Primary.
