The level of interaction was more than I anticipated. We could ask questions that the presenter may not have been expecting, but the team on the Royal Tyrrell Museum end would be ready to pull up resources and images relating to our questions. It's also great to know that they've developed programs and linked them to learning outcomes in different grade levels. I'm looking forward to incorporating video conferencing into my future classrooms.
The 3 I's of video conferencing, according to the Royal Tyrrell Museum:
The Royal Tyrrell Museum isn't the only content provider out there! There are over 200 providers now. Some of these include: the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Centre of Puppetry Arts, and the Global Nomad's group. One website that I noted was the Centre for Interactive Learning and Collaboration.
