Virtual School to sponsor videoconference for students
200 environmental science students will participate in a videoconference
May 1, sponsored by Vanderbilt Virtual School, the Princeton Review
and Project DIANE.
The students, from Hillwood,
Martin Luther King and Hume-Fogg high schools in Metro and Pate High
School in Williamson County, have been meeting via videoconference
with a Radnor Lake naturalist and each other as part of their Advanced
Placement environmental science classes.
In the May
1 session, to be held from 3 to 4 p.m., Princeton Review instructor
Dan O’Gorman will give a presentation on “Preparing for an AP Exam.”
The 45-minute presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer
teachers will dial in to a video bridge using their videoconference
equipment and the Project DIANE network. Vanderbilt and Project DIANE
donated the equipment to Hillwood and MLK high school.
