View the Teacher Preview Videoconference
originally scheduled Tuesday, December 1, 2009
This first videoconference session was intended for K12 teachers interested in having their classes participate in one or more of the upcoming live videoconference programs. Representatives from each of the participating NPS sites provided a preview of the topic and content to be covered during their program. Participating teachers were asked for feedback on specific content to include in the spring sessions in order to better match content curriculum.
