A few people have asked me this in the last couple days, so I thought I’d share it here too. If you’re looking for a demo with a content provider, the best place to look is the TWICE Professional Development page. It has a customized search to the BCISD VC Programs database to find all the programs targeted to teachers. You can also do the search yourself and type “teacher” in the standards field and even adjust the cost to find free demos if you wish. Good luck planning your PD sessions!
Last year, two of my local elementary buildings took on a wonderful project to study the local history between their two cities. With a Rotary Grant, they bought Polycoms for the two buildings, and used the distance learning technology to bridge across the river that is often said to divide their two communities. I encourage you to read more about the Voices of the Twin Cities Past project and do a similar project with a partner class this year!
