Videoconferencing K-12: The State of the Art
Merrick, Scott
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v2 n1 Oct-Nov 2005
Interactive videoconferencing (IVC) is gaining support among a growing number of teachers, administrators, and technologists. Scott Merrick examines the benefits and potential uses of IVC in the K-12 classroom. IVC provides educators with access to a rich array of supplemental resources, enables students to interact with experts to whom they would normally have no access, and gives parents a novel opportunity to become involved in their children's learning through archived video clips on the school Web site. Merrick provides examples of such systems in use at various K-12 institutions, resources for collaborative opportunities, a literature review that provides instructors with cutting-edge research on IVC's educational applications, and budgetary suggestions to make these possibilities a reality.
