• The Media Center houses a collection of VHS and DVD titles. If you plan to screen a video/film that is now owned and/or approved by LRMS or WCPSS, you need to submit an approval form (Intranet link - only available on campus) to the principal. Pay careful attention to ratings and objectionable material. Any video shown needs to be legally obtained (downloading a bootleg copy from the Internet or making a copy of a friend's DVD are illegal examples).
    There are many other online sources for video content, too...

    Video Conferencing: Bringing the World Into the Classroom

     Video conferencing services permit you to make a "video call." Your laptop camera broadcasts its image and sound to another location. Likewise, you can see and hear others at that remote location. Video conferencing can enable you to interact with others from across the globe, right in your own classroom! Have guest speakers address your class. Connect with other classrooms across the globe to learn together. Maybe take a virtual field trip to a place far away, complete with tour guide?!
    The two common tools used for video conferencing are:
    You'll likely have a better experience in WCPSS using Google Hangouts. Click here for a quick-start Google Hangouts tutorial.
    These content resources can help you find others to connect with...
    Skype in the Classroom - find virtual field trips or guest speakers who "visit" for free
    Remember! Make sure students have photo/video permission on file in PowerSchool. Students without permission can take part, but need to sit off-camera so their image is not broadcast to the remote user.
