This list will put you in touch with other K12 schools AROUND THE WORLD
who have the capability to do CU-SeeMe video conferencing over the
Internet. The list will be used to announce upcoming special events and
opportunities for schools to participate in live videoconferences with
schools, scientists, authors, government, business, and community leaders.

The Global SchoolNet Foundation has been designing collaborative projects
incorporating Cornell's CU-SeeMe desktop video-conferencing in the
classroom with students since 1992.

Cu-SeeMe software is free and can be downloaded from:


Our teachers believe live interactive video conferencing is a VERY
valuable instructional tool. Our K12 students have interacted with famous
politicians, CEOs, scientists, authors, and other leaders around the

However, "live" interactive video requires the availability of a real-time
community focused on accomplishing a task. A video conference is very much
like a meeting that is more effective when there is a moderator and an
agenda. Holding a "meeting" in cyberspace introduces the additional
challenge of different times zones and school schedules.

List members are encouraged to use this list to:

* announce events that other K12 schools are invited to participate in

* to share lesson plans and implementation strategies for utilizing
live inter-active video to enhance the learning environment

* to explore the use of CU-SeeMe to facilitate long distance learning

* identify an audience to view and critique your presentations

* to DISCOVER and DOCUMENT what works and what does not work!
