St. Anne Catholic School has entered into a unique partnership with Science North in piloting an in-class videoconference session. Mr. Thomson's grade 6 class will participate in piloting the Science North video conferencing school program "Predators and Prey" on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 from 12:35-1:55 p.m. |
Grade 6 students will utilize newly installed Smartboard technology in the classroom to conduct a videoconference with a Bluecoat from Science North. The program Science North is presenting is Predators and their Prey. It is a program suitable for grades 4 to 6 but has specific curriculum links in grades 4 and 6. The videoconference will be approximately 50 minutes in duration. The program includes a Science North science kit containing animal skulls, skeletons, tracks, etc.
This videoconference provides the students with not only a “one of a kind hands on learning experience” but also demonstrates how the use of technology can foster creative and unique partnerships in the Sudbury community
