K2K- It's da bomb!

In the six years I have been in the wonderful world of educational videoconferencing- the classroom collaboration focus has really taken hold!

Tomorrow starts the monthly connections between kindergarten classes at Somers (teacher: Kim Frost) and Grant (teacher: Lynette Powers).

I've said it before and I'll say it again- some of the BEST videoconference connections happen in our own backyard! While it is grand to know you can connect anywhere in the world, sometimes across the county is as meaningful!

I see students in October connect for the first time with fear, shyness and sometimes tears- but by May- it's two classrooms of mini Oprah Winfreys and Charlie Gibsons! The communication skills they acquire using this technology are lifelong.

Our in-district connections have been so successful, more pair-ups are in progress!

Whether you are inside KUSD or out, and you are interested in a collaboration project, contact me and we can develop a project together!
