Getting started with Videoconferencing
This FREE online session is the perfect introduction to anyone new to using videoconference in the classroom and is run over VC equipment.
To date few schools have engaged with videoconferencing but now they may find that this technology can help them to meet challenges such as differentiated support for all students, personalization of learning and cost-effective continuing professional development, both received and delivered. Using the technology has also shown to increase student engagement through access to experts to support learning.
All you will need as a minimum is a web cam and PC computer connected to the internet or a H323 complient endpoint on the Ja.net network – we can help you with either.
The facilities that video conferencing provides can help to address these through the use of free or lost-cost technology and provide connection and communication between individuals, groups and organizations.
The purpose of this session is to look at the technology and address the following
- Why use videoconferencing.
- What equipment is needed and how should a classroom be organized.
- Videoconferencing and eSafety.
- Activities for getting started in your school.
- Finding content providers.
- Opportunities that videoconferencing offers for professional support and development.
- Using the JA.net videoconferencing services v-scene.
