Digital video conferencing/field trips open the door to thousands of 21st Century opportunities for teachers to enhance their instruction by providing live programming offered by world-wide colleges, universities, museums, state/federal governmental departments, zoos, hospitals, businesses, etc.
From learning about the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence via connecting to The National Archives in Washington D.C., to viewing a live, narrated open heart surgery in anatomy class, sponsored by the Museum of Science and Industry, there is something for everyone.
