During the meeting they connected live with a teacher from Arkansas who told the group how her and Susan's students are meeting using this technology and working on a wiki collaboratively, while practicing their writing and reading skills. What is very fascinating aboout Angela Grenier, the English Teacher with Office of Distance Education at the Arkansas School of Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts, University of Arkansas system. - is that every day she teaches students who are 200 miles away from her. Video-conferencing technology makes it possible for learners in remote, rural areas to get the best quality teachers available.
