Do you have a sister school or an expert you want to invite to speak to your students? or work with your staff? You dont have to get into a bus, car (or plane sadly!) You could use Vitural Conferencing.
Virtual conferencing can be accessed via the internet and allows for participants in multiple locations to interact using audio, video, screen sharing, file sharing, application sharing, a shared interactive whiteboard, polling or instant messaging. Victorian schools have access to many virtual conferencing tools including:
Polycom (Vic GOV)
Microsoft Lync (Vic GOV)
