    • A teacher’s viewpoint:  ◦ “After leaving the classroom for years and returning I feel overwhelmed by the amount of new technology, and although I feel that videoconferencing would be beneficial to my students I do not feel that I have the knowledge to incorporate it into my classroom.”  - Ernestina Adornato, Bermudian Springs High School
    • Videoconferencing can be difficult to  incorporate into district’s budgets due to the cost of equipment and training Most schools have a difficult time staying  within their budget for necessary items such as books
