This web site from the Northwest Education Technology Consortium provides K-12 teachers with the information they need to use videoconferencing technology for instruction, communication, collaboration, and professional development. “Digital Bridges” includes best-practice examples of videoconferencing in the classroom, information about planning and implementing a videoconferencing element in schools, and resources to help teachers understand how videoconferencing technology works. The site helps educators calculate the amount of time and effort they’ll need to implement a videoconferencing solution, determine the essential components, address staffing issues, and correct logistical concerns. Users can choose from between two tracks: Teacher/Curriculum Planner or Administrator/Decision-Maker. Many sections include detailed examples from specific schools that have created videoconferencing Digital Bridges themselves.
