Yesterday, Stephanie Madlinger and I went to the Mehlville School District Technology Fair to share with teachers, parents and board members what CSD- specifically the Virtual Learning Center- does for Mehlville schools. In our corner booth, I talked about videoconferencing and New Links to New Learning, and Stephanie shared information on unitedstreaming. Teachers and parents alike were interested in hearing about the tele classes the VLC offers, as well as what kind of videoconferences schools connect to during the school day. Stephanie was able to tell teachers about the free unitedstreaming training the VLC offers monthly. I also shared with those who visited our booth that New Links members have an opportunity to come to tele classes for free- 3 teachers in a New Links district can come to 3 tele classes at no charge, as along as one of those classes is ‘Boundless Learning with Videoconferencing.’ METC was also a hot topic, and several principals took information with them. Not only were Mehlville teachers present, but we spoke with educators from Affton and Fox. Stephanie and I were happy to be able to let people know about what we do- it was a good evening!
