Megaconference Jr. 2013 -

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for May 2, 2013!!

Megaconference Jr., now in its 10th year, is a FREE international program designed to give students in elementary through secondary schools around the world the opportunity to communicate, collaborate and contribute to each other’s learning in real time, using advanced multi-point video conferencing technology.

Megaconference Jr. addresses local and national curriculum standards in multiple subject areas. It will also help students and teachers develop the capacity to effectively utilize high-speed networks, videoconferencing and other emerging technologies to enhance learning experiences. You can sign up to be a viewing site this year to see how learning is empowered by videoconferencing technology!

Who Can Participate

Megaconference Jr. is open to K-20 classrooms (students ages 5-23) all around the world. It is designed to be “student-driven” thus we encourage students to do the planning and presenting on their own, with support from their teachers, coach and/or experts in the field to help them through the process.

This year’s event will run from 6:00 AM – 7:00 PM EDT (UTC -4). The 13 hour duration will make it possible for schools from many time zones to participate.
