Video Chat at Lincoln

I had the privilege of spending the morning in Mr. Parr's classroom at Lincoln Elementary as his students did a FaceTime chat with Dr. Parr on the east coast.  Dr. Parr is a university professor and the students had some great questions lined up about the causes and prevention of obesity.  I appreciated Mr. Parr's willingness to not let initial technology hurdles (two blown projector bulbs...when does that happen but on the day you really need it) get in the way.

Students were excited to see themselves on the screen, engaged, asking good questions, and taking notes on Dr. Parr's responses.  It was an excellent way to move the classroom beyond the physical walls of the school.
