About the book:

Interactive videoconferencing (IVC) networks are increasingly available to educators and offer the potential to link classrooms worldwide, connect far-flung learners to subject area experts, and bring in much-needed supplemental content. However, as with many educational technologies, we've spent billions on hardware, networks, and installation, and precious little on preparing teachers to usefully integrate these fantastic tools into the curriculum. Videoconferencing for K-12 Classrooms fills this crucial need. Written by three educators with decades of combined experience implementing IVC, the book is filled with real-life stories and proven strategies. Teachers and tech coordinators can find the information and techniques they need to get started with this powerful educational tool

Complete program development guide to basic IVC hardware, implementation strategies, classroom management, and curricular design
Inspirational vignettes describing successful IVC programs and projects worldwide
Useful lesson and evaluation templates and a guide to IVC resources
