Abstract

In this paper, we describe our efforts to introduce desktop videoconferencing into schools. Our particular project focus is the support of distributed collaborative learning between K-12 science classrooms. We outline an educational argument for the use of videoconferencing and go on to present a case study of the educational videoconferencing experiences in our project. We particularly identify and describe the kinds of technical difficulties that can be encountered and the way we overcame most of these problems. Once the students began to use the technology meaningfully to support inter-school collaborative learning a whole host of interesting educational, organizational and other issues began to emerge. We highlight the most important of these issues. Finally, we consider some of the issues influencing teacher acceptance of videoconferencing.
