Videoconferencing for K-12 Classrooms is an essential resource for every school and district leader, whether you already have a fledgling videoconferencing program or are still contemplating one. Interactive videoconferencing (IVC) networks have become increasingly available to educators. They offer the potential to link classrooms worldwide, connect far-flung learners to subject area experts, expose students to places and people that simply can’t be reached through traditional field trips, and bring in much-needed supplemental content. Videoconferencing is still very much a growth area in K-12 education—the costs for systems have come down, their capabilities have grown, and the economics of bringing outside expertise into the classroom have significantly tilted in favor of IVC.

This new edition of Videoconferencing for K-12 Classrooms includes a comprehensive review of current (and near-future) options for building an effective videoconferencing program, from initial planning to teacher training, implementation, and assessment. The authors, experts in the videoconferencing and education fields, introduce concepts in a fresh, engaging, and easy-to-digest format with multiple examples, case studies, fully vetted resources, and practical tips that you can use to enhance your existing videoconferencing capabilities or to build a system from the bottom up. No longer bound by the walls of the school building, the classroom of today is truly global. Videoconferencing for K-12 Classrooms is the key to making the world accessible for both teachers and students.
