Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of videoconferencing technology in K-12 instruction from the perspective of a program (content) provider. The chapter provides an overview of the development process, issues and challenges, and future goals of a distance learning program which provides lessons to K-12 classrooms across the country. Specific topic areas include technology and equipment, establishing partnerships, working with K-12 school districts and educators, expanding a program, and staffing needs. Using the analogy of a road trip, the author takes us on a journey through the development, piloting, and use of a distance education videoconferencing program and how it is now being sustained and enhanced.
