Creating Virtual Classrooms for Rural and Remote Communities
Rao, Kavita; Eady, Michelle; Edelen-Smith, Patricia
Phi Delta Kappan, v92 n6 p22-27 Mar 2011
Students in remote communities face many challenges to get an education. This is especially true for indigenous and native people. To train teachers for these populations, the authors used web-based conferencing, which avoids some of the technological challenges of communicating with students in these communities. The virtual classes also were organized to take students' cultural preferences into account and to create learning communities among students.
