Videoconferencing Program Spells Success For Limited-English Students

T.H.E. Journal, November 1998, p. 69

The Restructuring Educational Behaviors to Ultimately Improve Literacy in Dual-Languages (REBUILD) program has implemented videoconferencing as the primary tool to help limited English proficient students overcome obstacles to learning.

Through the use of videoconferencing, collaboration on lesson plans and teaching students at different campuses have improved test scores of students in the Gardena Complex of schools in the L.A. Unified School District.

Private technology companies have also been integral to the success of the program. Premio Computer, Lucent Technologies, and Zydacron all lent assistance, training, and support to the videoconferencing project.
