Photo of the Day: Accompsett Students Video Conference with Pen Pals

Fourth grade students use modern communication to speak with Texas pen pals.

Pen pals usually communicate via handwritten letters, but fourth grade students at Accompsett Elementary took the form of communication a step further with pen pal video conferencing.

Students in Roseann Piazza’s class held a video conference with pen pals from Olmito Elementary School in Texas, a project designed for students from both schools to strengthen their technology curriculum in a long-distance collaborative learning environment.

After exchanging multiple handwritten letters, the students saw each other face-to-face for the first time in the distance learning lab at West where they discussed things from climate to school and hobbies, and spoke directly to their individual pen pals.
