On November 12, students in Ms. Gardner's 4th grade class at Rio Vista school had the wonderful opportunity to speak with a soldier in Iraq about being in the military and his experiences there. It was an excellent example of what happens when technology meets learning and enables new experiences in the classroom. Below is a brief (rough) clip from the day. You can also review some of the students' blog posts (with more on the way) reflecting on the event at: http://students.saugususd.org/_weblog/everyone.php?filter=tag&filtervalue=iraq .

Lots of great conversation followed about a whole host of topics, including discussions about the meaning of veterans day, what it's like to be a soldier, why there are delays between their questions and the soldier's responses, etc.

On Thursday, November 12, Tami Gardner and her class at Rio Vista did a Skype phone call  to Iraq with her brother who is stationed in Baghdad.  While the connection lasted he talked to the students and a few had an opportunity to ask him questions.  Here is a picture from the event.
