List Serve Educational Uses Of Videoconferencing In The Classroom Or Library                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   I have just registered one of my high school Spanish teachers for Read Across America, March 1 - 3, 2005 via videoconference through the TWICE organization. However, the registration form does not allow the registrant to make any special requests. Instead, it suggests that this listserv might be one of the useful channels for those requests. Therefore, I would like to request contact by any teachers of Spanish, French, or Latin who would like to partner with my teachers for a bilingual Read Across America connection. My foreign language teachers are willing to partner with other foreign language teachers on the Elementary, Middle, or High School levels. If you are interested in a bilingual connection, please email me information on the language you teach, school name, address, phone number, grade level of your students, date (s) and time (s) your class will be available to videoconference, technology used for videoconferencing, technology contact person, technology contact's email address and phone number.
