Videoconferencing in the classroom

This workshop is the perfect introduction to anyone new to or would like to update their skills using videoconferencing in the classroom.

To date a few schools have engaged with videoconferencing and now they  find this technology can help them to meet challenges such as differentiated support for students, personalisation of learning and  cost-effective continuing professional development, both received and delivered. Using this technology has also shown to increase  student engagement through access to experts to support learning.

“When we attended this event colleagues found it useful to have Videoconferencing clearly explained and demonstrated. 

Few realised how easily, and at minimal or no cost, that it could be setup and prove useful in their schools.
