Connecting Schools and Higher Ed. via Video Conferencing

Tully Elementary School & SUNY Cortland

A Live Look Into The Classroom

classroom teachers collaborate with
SUNY Cortland Pre-Service Teachers to provide Cortland students with a  live look at a class room prior to student teaching.

This shared experience is a valubale learning tool for teachers-in-training.  Their microphone can be muted and key points can be discussed while the lesson unfolds.

Testimonials:  Inquiry into Teaching, Curriculum, Technology, and Teaching (SUNY Cortland EDU 379)

"I like that I was an observer without being interrupted.  I could focus more on what the students were doing.  I enjoyed the different strategies that the teacher used…"

"I enjoyed seeing lessons actually being implemented. It was great to see a math program (Everyday Math) being used; very insightful for teacher candidates.  It was also neat to witness a morning meeting of older students (6th grade)…"

"I really liked this because it was nice to observe a “live” classroom and get a feel for things.  This could be convenient if you were to go global and include diversity (observe a class in a different country…)"

"The videoconferencing was a great opportunity to get real life examples of what happens in a classroom setting.  I wish we could have more of these conferences because it helped me understand some of the concepts that I was learning. "

"In my opinion I think the videoconferencing is a vital component to seeing different classrooms and how they interact.  It is good to observe other grades.”  (the author’s field placement was first grade, and she videoconferenced with  6th graders).
