IVC - PPS Megaconference
This morning Ms. Leonard's 4th graders watched as Allderdice High School presented "My Trip to the Polar Bears." Then we disconnected for a NC Museum of History videoconference and after reconnected to Pittsburgh. Ms. Throckmorton's class of 4th graders interacted with PGH Murray and another school as Arlington ALA presented AfricQuest in a Jeopardy format. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot of interesting things about the continent, Africa. BTW, we came in second out of three. At the second roll call, Ms. McDermon chimed in hello from North Carolina (our classes were at lunch and unavailable).
Today some of our classes participated in the Pittsburgh Public Schools Megaconference. We interacted with two other schools as the fourth school presented. It was great!
Last, Ms. Verner's 3rd grade class participated int he "Discover West African Rhythms" (drums) presented by Eau Claire High School. Two Pittsburgh schools participated with us also, as we thumped out our drumming sounds.
We love learning and sharing with videoconferencing!
