Videoconferencing blends technology, history lessons

Makayla Newman and Andrew Gillespie of Millerton School keep a close eye on the TV during a video conference with five other schools from across New Brunswick, Wednesday. The video conference was the climax of a project spearheaded by 21 Inc that saw the students make video projects about their communities.

Students from schools in New Brunswick, Canada, are using videoconferencing to communicate and discuss video projects they completed about their communities. "As a whole, it was a great learning experience," said teacher Jane Donaldson. "It gave the kids a good opportunity to research the [area] and it also gave them a chance to use new technology in the production of their video." Miramichi Leader (New Brunswick, Canada)
