The following is a message sent out to teachers who registered to participate in our videoconferences and webcasts from Pearl Harbor this week.
Thanks for your interest in participating in our videoconferences and webcasts from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, this week. We have created a Google Group to facilitate the sharing of news and announcements related to this videoconferencing project and others like it which (we hope) will take place in the future. Our project this year is titled “Oklahoma World War II Stories,” but this Google Group is titled the “Oklahoma Digital Learning Project – Hawaii 2007” in the hope we will be able to support similar projects like this one in the future. Additional information about download links for the December 6, 2007, videoconferences will be shared and posted here and on our project wiki. Here are links you can use and may find helpful tomorrow and in the weeks ahead:
