Explore Ancient Chinese tombs, participate in a Japanese tea ceremony, or involve students in a debate on global issues without leaving your classroom. Videoconferencing has the ability to enrich curriculum with resources and experts in all curriculum fields,
The Philadelphia Museum of Art - http://www.philamuseum.org
offers two-way interactive videoconference lessons that give students access to museum artifacts from around the world. Students can explore the Art of the Japanese Tea Ceremony or the Art of Asia.
Interactive sessions with students from other countries will start your class on the road to global citizenship. Discuss politics, global warming, the UN Millenium Goals, or geography. Through these sessions students can develop informed opinions of the world around them and be prepared to participate in our new “FLAT” world.
In today’s challenging economic times, videoconferencing offers schools access to people and places that otherwise students could only read about in books.
