    •  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
