BCIU Awarded Telepresence Grant

The Berks County Intermediate Unit has been awarded $29,855 through the Keystone Telepresence Education Grant Program. This grant will enhance opportunities for Berks County students requiring home-based instruction with access to live, synchronous classroom instruction.

A portion of the grant will be used for the purchase of 11 Owls, or telepresence devices, that will allow students to engage in live classroom instruction using a 360-degree camera. In addition, the telepresence program will expand traditional offerings for home-based instruction through a technology loan program, technical support, and professional development.

The telepresence program will support continuity of education, ongoing social connectedness, and learning opportunities for students with complex learning or medical needs.
