Read Around the Planet 2010, Sponored by Polycom and TWICE
An increasing number of primary and secondary schools are leveraging video conferencing for classroom-to-classroom collaboration as a way to expand their curriculum and give students memorable learning experiences by interacting with students and teachers in other cities, states and countries. Each year hundreds of schools get their first experience through Read Around the Planet, a free, annual video conferencing event sponsored by Polycom, Inc., the leading provider of visual communications solutions, and Two-Way Interactive Connections in Education (TWICE), Michigans K-12 video conference organization. In its ninth year, Read Around the Planet 2010 took place between Feb. 22 and March 5 and involved more than 58,000 students in six countries.
