New Episode! Communication & Collaboration, Learning NOW in Barrington 220

Episode 5 of Learning NOW in Barrington 220, Communication & Collaboration, is online today!

This episode of Learning NOW in Barrington 220 is about how Barrington 220 students in elementary, middle, and high school use One to World technology devices for Communication and Collaboration. Barrington 220 students Morgan Smith (Grove Elementary), Brittney Monreal (Barrington Middle School - Station), and Ishani Majmudar (Barrington High School) talk about the many ways they communicate and collaborate in their learning. Their examples include online video messages, collaborative Google Docs, FaceTime video chat, Seesaw online classroom spaces, the Schoology learning management system, and some of Barrington 220’s video production opportunities.

Grade 5 students from Roslyn Road Elementary, Finley Hiser, Connor Canavan, Leila Murtishi, and Channing McCallum, then discuss how they researched the topic of whether or not humans should visit Mars by participating in a cross-country Skype call with Dr. Pascal Lee, Director of the Haughton Mars Project at NASA. Roslyn Road Elementary students then participated in a cross-town online debate using the Flipgrid video messaging app to engage with peers at Grove Avenue Elementary.

Don't forget to watch all the way to the end so you can follow the link to participate in a Parent/Community Survey! The survey results will be used to help us improve our One to World program.

This episode was released on Thursday, May 3, 2018. Watch for the next episode, Creativity, on Thursday, May 10, 2018.
