Teachers will be able to identify primary sources of information and learn strategies on reaching out to publicists, personal assistants and other people who help with communicating with more well known guests.
Participants will see examples of various video conference guests, along with review strategies in regard to reaching out to potential speakers. Participants will then discuss guests they would like to have connect with their students and review strategies in how to reach out. We will address how these activities connect to several ISTE Standards. Attendees will be asked to share any of their collaborative activities connecting students to the world at large.
