      Virtual Field Trips
    • Many conferences are free or low-cost (under $150 per session), allowing teachers to take a field trip for about the same price as actually visiting the location.
    • 5. Since many of the conferences are interactive, you still have the experience of “being there”.
  • 6.
      Collaborative Projects
    • Some teachers are looking to collaborate with other teachers on projects.
    • 7. Instead of a virtual field trip, you can meet up with another class to discuss a book, share an art project, and talk to other foreign language classes.
  • 8. Tools that Can Be Used
    • Videoconferencing Equipment (Polycom, Tandberg units, etc.)
    • 9. Internet Video Chat Tools (Skype, Oovoo, etc.)
    • 10. Webcam, microphone, speakers (for Internet Video Chat Tools), projector (for both)
  • 11.
      Quick Reminders
    • If you want to find a local provider, give them a call. Many are not using Skype right now, but are willing to try it. If you are comfortable with Skype, feel free to set up a test call to show the tool.
    • 12. Remember to ask if there are pre- and post-conference materials to prepare for the conference and later debrief the students.
