          Guide
Welcome to the New Jersey Videoconferencing Resource Guide for K-
20 educators (VK20). Bring the exciting world of museums, zoos,
authors, experts and students from around the state into your
classroom. This guide is a collaborative effort of Rutgers University
Center for Mathematics, Science and Computer Education, NJEdge.net
P20 Initiative, and the Garden State Distance Learning Consortium. It
is supported by Verizon.

The VK20 guide is a gateway to New Jersey resources as well as
national programming that can be accessed via videoconferencing. This
database will allow you to search by grade level , content area, or
content provider to find programs that enhance and excite your
classrooms. Watch for upcoming details on the searchable database.

Through video conferencing, teachers and students gain access to
resources beyond the four walls of their classrooms. With over 200
programs the VK20 project provides a comprehensive New Jersey
resource guide and website to assist educators in locating content-rich
programming for their students. Peer to peer opportunities which
enable exciting and informative classroom sharing projects are also
found in the guide. Educators can also locate professional development
programs they can participate in from their school or other local
videoconferencing site.


We would like to thank all the content providers and educators
throughout New Jersey and in neighboring states for all their
contributions. The VK20 guide will be updated periodically.

Program Title: A World in Motion: The Design Experience

Description:    Learn about curricula and materials developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers
                (SAE) in which students design a toy based on a request from a toy company. Over
                approximately 20 lessons, students develop a proposal and a prototype for a toy of their
                design. Students must work in teams to create the design. The module culminates in
                student presentations of their working modules and a discussion of the design teams’
                effort to address the challenge. Teacher-directed, multidisciplinary activities cover the
                basic concepts and skills needed to understand the principles behind the prototypes.
                The lessons include: demonstrations and hands-on experiences examining force and
                friction, simple machines, levers and gears, gear ratios, conducting controlled
                experiments, public speaking and writing skills.

Program Title: Engineering the Future

Description:    Two short modules adapted from the year-long Engineering the Future curriculum
                developed by the Museum of Science, Boston will be explored. In the first module,
                Redesign a Toy Boat for a Patent, students are challenged to apply fundamental
                concepts of matter and energy to understand how a “putt-putt” boat works and then
                redesign it. Teams work together in a series of activities to better understand how
                energy is transferred through the boat system, from a candle that provides energy input,
                to the jets of water that propel the boat forward. In the second module, Electrical and
                Communications Systems, students begin with simple electric circuit construction using
                batteries, bulbs, capacitors and compasses. With a strong foundation in electricity,
                students then explore communications systems. They experiment with microphones and
                speakers, seeing how these are similar electrical components, and how together they
                make telephones possible.

   Originally built in 1771 and reconstructed in 1798, Fort Mifflin is the oldest fortification continually used in the U.S. and
   was instrumental in allowing Washington and his Continental Army to retreat to Valley Forge in the fall of 1777.
   Witness to the largest bombardment ever seen on the North American continent, British forces hurled 1,000
   cannonballs every 20 minutes for almost six weeks. Programs at the facility focus on a Revolutionary War battle and
   Fort Mifflin’s strategic location in the Delaware River at the mouth of the Schuylkill River. Situated on about 30 acres, a
   complex of approximately eight historic buildings are open for tours.


Program Title: Blood & Tears: Civil War Medicine

Description:     One of the most unique and innovative education programs you will find at a historical
                 site. The Civil War Medicine Program uses Social Science, Physical Science and
                 Health Science to teach how soldiers were cared for in the field and at hospitals of the
                 era. Students will be taught the fundamental knowledge of doctors in the Civil War,
                 using the instruments of the day and the glossary of medical conditions, anatomy names
                 and procedures, including some medicines of the day and their cause and effect.
                 Students will be broken up into as many as 10 doctor groups and then become a
                 “collective” Civil War surgeon. From actual case histories they will then pre-op a soldier,
                 care for him and then write-up the findings and the patient’s prognosis. We will then
                 reveal what each group did and then see what the actual doctor at the time did and what
                 the actual outcome to the patient would be. Not for the squeamish.

Program Title: Civil War Soldier Life

Description:    Much like our Revolutionary War Soldier Life program, but with subtle differences due to
                the different era. Soldiers were fighting for far different reasons on both sides. But
                many on the same sides were also fighting for a different agenda. At Fort Mifflin, Union
                soldiers were garrisoned here and Confederate soldiers were prisoners. Students will
                learn how soldiers were recruited and trained and the assorted accouterments needed.
                A student will be recruited from the school to be a volunteer soldier and share the
                extreme challenges the men in this era faced.

Program Title: Stars & Stripes-The Story of the U.S. Flag

Description:    This program uses the theme of symbolism to tell the story of flags, our flag’s history in
                particular. From our time as French and British citizens, through the Colonial period, the
                Industrial Age, Regimental flags and banners and the country’s expansion, we explore
                the transformation of the U.S. flag from beginning to 2006 and beyond. In conclusion,
                students will design and make flags that symbolize their personality, hobbies, heritage,
                etc.

Program Title: GEMStones

Description:    Your GEMStones kit will contain approximately 25 specimens, each with mystery
                questions for students to solve and answer sheets for teachers. By handling and
                examining the samples in the kits they begin to solve basic earth science concepts for
                their own and get the “Oh Wow!” of science. This, combined with the interdependent
                theme, helps them understand the interconnectedness of Planet Earth. The basic
                program can be followed by international videoconferences with schools doing similar
                things in other countries allowing students to share their interest in geology across
                cultures.

Program Title: Globalization and Democracy

Description:    The purpose of this three part series is to connect high school students and teachers
                from around the world in an interactive discussion on topics facing today’s
                interdependent world. Each of the three sessions will be formatted around a short
                presentation from either a panel of experts on the topic, a case study relevant to the
                topic or student presentations. Student participants will then have the opportunity to
                question the presenters in an open forum. To get ready for each session, teach and
                students will have access to online teaching resources. These teaching materials are
                from pedagogical work of Grant Wiggins and the “Planning Backwards” model. In this
                model, “Essential Understandings” are clearly defined for each of the topical sessions.
                From these derived “Essential Questions” that frame the path to understanding. The
                various readings, videos, internet sources, and activities found on the site will provide
                resources to help answer some of the questions, with the panels of experts also
                providing real world anecdotes and answers. The goal of this series is to prepare
                students to be intelligently engaged in diagnostic analysis and discussion on selected
                topics and to become empowered and prescriptive problem solvers on some of the
                challenges facing their world.

Program Title: No More Business as Usual

Description:    Businesses have been in the news lately because many have acted in an unethical or
                irresponsible manner. Widespread incidences of lying, cheating and greed have led to
                improprieties and scandals at such companies as Enron, WorldCom and Tyco as well
                as numerous mutual fund companies. The values most people are taught at home and
                in school - do unto others, tell the truth, consider long term consequences - are often
                forgotten at work in the name of making the fast buck. As students start thinking about
                college sources and/or earning a living, both excitement and apprehension undoubtedly
                surface. Young adults are usually familiar with today’s economic uncertainties,
                environmental problems and global conflicts. Recent business scandals have touched
                the lives of many families and are understandably detrimental to society at large.
                Making a good living is an important goal but only if it is done in an equitable and
                sustainable manner i.e. business is operated responsibly. The goal of “Introduction to
                Socially Responsible Business” is to help students better understand our interdependent
                world and present a model that enhances the welfare of the economy, the ecosystem
                and society at large. This understanding will enable them to make informed decisions
                and ask timely questions of themselves, their communities and their leaders. Actions
                students can take to positively influence the business community are presented so that
                everyone has the opportunity to make a difference both locally and globally. Topics to
                select from: 1. Introduction to and History of Socially Responsible Business Movement.
                2. Benefits of Socially Responsible Business Practices - Sustainability. 3. Principles
                and Guidelines for SRB - The United Nations GlobalCompact. 4. How Students can
                Make a Difference. The programs allow for extensive interaction with students.

Program Title: Preys of War: The Liberian Conflict and Child Soldiers

Description:    Liberia, like the rest of Africa, has suffered decades of internal conflict and war of
                genocide, from which she has experienced population shifts and depletion through
                massacres and mass fleeing within the country, as well as outside refugees. From a
                personal, documented perspective, Dr. Carlon will provide a 20-minute presentation on
                the conflict and its aftermath and will then accept questions from students to go deeper
                into the issues. The issues will center on the recent civil war and its related
                consequences on the Liberian people and the African continent, especially its children.
                A brief history of the struggle will introduce the conflict and its after effects.
                Concentrated time will cover the civil war involving the Charles Taylor insurgency and
                the introduction of child soldiers into the conflict. The consequences of all of this will be
                addressed and time will be allowed to discuss what needs to be done to help reverse
                the effects of conflict.

Program Title: Music Bridges: Music, Melody & Me

Description:    Music, Melody and Me is an educational unit consisting of four lessons (2 pre-
                videoconference, 1 videoconference and 1 post-videoconference) designed to immerse
                students in the world of music. Through creative hands-on activities, the use of critical
                thinking skills, and research, students learn prior to the videoconference about the
                instrument families and develop an understanding of the various sound qualities that
                instruments make. Through guided instruction, students then apply the knowledge they
                have gained by constructing their own musical instruments, which they present to
                Manhattan School of Music faculty member Earl Carter during the videoconference
                lesson. This culminates in a spirited interactive exchange in which Carter transforms
                students’ own motific ideas into improvisatory compositions.
                Students develop an understanding of the basic building blocks of music, melody and
                motive throughout the videoconference lesson, which is the center piece of the unit.
                Guided by Carter, students learn how instrumental sounds are fashioned into musical
                compositions, generating skills to examine the components of themes in music. These
                concepts are dynamically illustrated through live performance and with the aid of
                prerecorded video musical examples performed by talented Manhattan School of Music
                students. Your students come away from the videoconference as more discerning
                listeners with a heightened appreciation and awareness of how music is made. They
                will face the challenge of creating melodies of their own during the post-videoconference
                lesson.
                With over 30 yrs. experience as an educator, Early Carter has held positions on the
                faculty of the Great Neck Public Schools and the Boys’ Choir of Harlem, among others,
                and is chair of the theory department at Harlem School for the Arts. A faculty member
                of the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Division since 1970, Carter is known for
                his vibrant and engaging teaching style. In the words of Manhattan School of Music

Program Title: Parenting with Emotional Intelligence for Student Success in School and Life

Description:     No Child Left Behind mandates that schools provide programs for parents to assist them
                 in preparing their children for learning and in creating a proper environment for them to
                 succeed academically. This program is based on the latest research showing that
                 social-emotional factors, which parents can influence a great deal, are strongly
                 connected to students’ success in school and in life. Participants will learn how, in
                 everyday parenting situations, they can create a caring, sharing, more peaceful
                 household and at the same time better prepare their children to deal with the stresses
                 and tasks of academic demands.

                 This program is offered in English and Spanish.

Description:  Give your students a “kids’ eye” view of the Victorian era during an interactive tour of the
              Emlen Physick Estate, Cape May’s only Victorian house museum. Built in 1879, this
              Stick Style mansion is attributed to renowned Victorian architect Frank Furness, and is
              furnished to reflect daily life in a turn-of-the century household. Your students can

              takes approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the students’ attention span.

   Created by legislation in 1986, the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Committee was charged with determining
   the design and location as well as raising the funds needed to construct the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial.
   The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial is an open-air structure made up of 366 polished black granite panels -
   one for each day of the year. Engraved on each of these panels are the names of the 1,560 New Jerseyans killed or
   reported missing on that date. Hien Nguyen, who fled war-torn South Vietnam in 1975, designed the Memorial. At the
   center, a red oak, the official state tree, shades a grouping of three bronze statues sculpted by artist Thomas Jay
   Warren. The oversized statues represent the men who died, those who came home and the women who served beside
   them. The Memorial was dedicated on May 7, 1995.
            The Vietnam Era Educational Center, dedicated in 1998, is the first educational center in the country devoted
   solely to gaining an understanding of the war in Southeast Asia and the political strife in America. It enables visitors to
   attain a greater understanding of the myriad of forces that produced the conflict abroad and the dissension at home.
   Located adjacent to the NJ Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial, it provides both learning materials and exhibits to help visitors
   understand the significance of the Memorial, the reality of the conflict, and the social, political and cultural complexities
   of the war years. Guided tours are provided to school groups and other groups, all led by Vietnam Veteran volunteers.
   In addition, a full calendar of lectures, film presentations and teacher programs offers the general public an opportunity
   to learn more about this unique time in our nation’s history.



Program Title: Lessons of the Vietnam War

Description:     Studying a particular year during the Vietnam Era will be enhanced by interviewing a
                 person who lived during that time. This person will be able to recount how he or she
                 felt and was affected by the actions of specific events. For the distance learning activity,
                 in partners or small groups, students will prepare a list of possible questions. Questions
                 should be geared toward the political and cultural environment of the time. The teacher
                 will receive a short biography on the person to be interviewed so that the questions can
                 be tailored to the role that the interviewee played during the Vietnam Era. They may
                 have been a military or civilian actually in Vietnam, or he or she may have lived in the
                 United States during this time period and watched the war unfold while a family member
                 was fighting in Vietnam. The lesson will start out with the subject talking about his or
                 her role during the Vietnam Era and conclude with a discussion of the period of time
                 surrounding the event being studied. During the lesson, students will have the
                 opportunity to ask their own questions.

Program Title: Social Change and Unrest in the Vietnam Era

Description:     During the Vietnam era, many protests, marches, and demonstrations took place
                across the country. Individuals had different views on the effect that the anti-war
                movement had on the war. This activity helps students explore these different points of
                view as well as express how they would feel if put in the situation. At the beginning of
                the distance learning lesson, we will ask the class to answer a series of questions. We
                will then watch approximately 5 minutes of Voices from Vietnam which plays in the
                exhibit area of the Vietnam Era Educational Center. At the conclusion of the video the
                class will have the opportunity to discuss the anti-war movement with one or more
                individuals. This individual may be a veteran or other individual who lived through the
                Vietnam Era and either participated in or witnessed the anti-war movement.

Program Title: Vietnam: The People, The Country, The Culture

Description:    When veterans first went to Vietnam, many did not know where Vietnam was even
                located and even fewer knew what to expect when they arrived. They quickly learned
                how to survive in this climate that was so different from their own and also learned an
                appreciation for the beauty of this country. This activity helps students explore the
                climate and country of Vietnam as well as make comparisons to the climates that they
                are familiar with. At the beginning of the distance-learning lesson, we will ask a few
                members of the class to share about their favorite season. We will then watch
                approximately one minute of a video from the exhibit area of the Vietnam Era
                Educational Center. Within the video two veterans talk about their first impressions
                when they arrived in Vietnam. Next, a veteran will address the students and tell them
                about their first impressions of Vietnam. We will pan to the large mural in the exhibit
                area of Vietnam. This will then be followed by a look at some photographs that veterans
                took when they were serving in Vietnam. Through this entire process, students will be
                able to ask questions of the veteran to help them gain a better understanding of the
                climate and countryside of Vietnam.

Program Title: Women of the Vietnam Era

Description:    Women’s lives and experiences in war have historically been ignored or minimized in
                most history books. This unit is designed to highlight the roles and experiences of
                women in the Vietnam Era. Whether these women were serving in Vietnam or were in
                the United States during this time, the memories these women have are important to
                help the younger generation better understand this tumultuous time in our nation’s
                history. There is much to be learned from how women both “in country’ and stateside
                witnessed the Vietnam War. The lesson will start out with the subject talking about her
                role during the Vietnam Era, whether that be one of solider, civilian, wife, sister, friend,
                etc. During the lesson, students will have the opportunity to interview this woman. It is
                through her eyes that the students will gain a better understanding of the war and how it
                unfolded.

Program Title: The Rainforest Connection Live!

Description:  Since 2003, “The Rainforest Connection Live!” has brought together scientists and
              young students to discuss topics in ecology. The scientists review research and show
              video clips to illustrate their work. Classes ask questions and provide comparative
              information about the topics from their own local habitats. Sessions last up to 50
              minutes to accommodate student interaction. Each session is to be shared by up to 3
              classes in different locations. Several scientists and teachers chat with students in the
              USA from their rainforest location on Barro Colorado Island, Panama at the Smithsonian
              Tropical Research Institute. Some sessions are conducted in Spanish or bilingually.
              Sessions are preceded and followed by background information to tie the live
              discussions to the NJ State Standards, and to embed the videoconferences within a
              curricular unit. Additional components of the program are to be added in 2006 which will
              expand to habitats such as coral reefs, and topics including planetary science.
              Language Arts are an important part of the preparation of students for their discussions
              with scientists, and for continued email exchanges. Professional development in the
              effective uses “The Rainforest Connection Live!” are offered every year.

Program Title: Science in the Cinema via Video Conferencing

Description:    Science in the Cinema in its original form is a free film and lecture series intended for a
                broad range of individuals who enjoy the cinema and have an interest in science and
                medicine. Selected films touch on a variety of medical and scientific topics. Following
                each film, an expert discusses the science depicted in the film and takes questions from
                the audience. These discussions also include the ethical implications raised by the film.
                Science in the Cinema via Videoconferencing uses the same concept, but connects the
                students with the expert using videoconferencing. Recent projects have included
                experts in the fields of medicine, genetics, anthropology, cellular biology and toxicology.
                An example is the movie Lorenzo’s Oil that was used as a catalyst to discussions on the
                treatment of diseases and the ethics in human experiments and gene therapy. Dr.
                Tischfield, a Rutgers professor of genetics was the guest speaker. Other movies
                include Jurassic Park, and The Real Jurassic Park, Civil Action, Gattaca, The Island of
                Dr. Moreau, and Erin Brokovich.

Program Title: The Living Room War: Television & Vietnam

Description:    From 1965 to 1975, television played an unprecedented role in shaping American
                perceptions of the Vietnam War. New technology and unlimited access to the
                battlefields of Southeast Asia invested field reporters with the ability to broadcast what
                came to be known as “bang-bang” coverage. The carnage of the war and the
                consequences for American morale, both on the battlefield and at home, led to deep
                divisions in how Americans came to view the role of government, the military, social
                change, and war itself. This class helps students analyze documentaries, news, and

Rutgers University’s Center for Mathematics, Science and Computer Education
In 1984, Rutgers University established the Center for Mathematics, Science, and
Technology to systematically contribute to the improvement of mathematics, science, and
computer education programs in New Jersey schools and in schools throughout the
nation. Through workshops at Rutgers and in districts throughout the state, Center
instructors provide hands-on, interactive classes and workshops to enhance the
curriculum, improve classroom instruction and increase the achievement of ALL
students. In 1993 the Center began to explore ways to use videoconferencing in the
classroom. In the years since they have conducted projects such as ProShare Pals, Pals
Around the World, Building Effective Learning Communities with the goal of finding
effective ways of using videoconferencing. Their expertise in videoconferencing and
distance learning has been shared with teachers, and content providers around the state.
They have received grants or equipment from Intel, The Grove Foundation, Bell Labs,
Colgate Palmolive Co, Johnson and Johnson and Verizon to further assist them in the
research into the effectiveness of videoconferencing.

NJEDge.Net
NJEDge.Net, Inc., New Jersey’s Higher Education Network, is a non-profit consortium
that was developed as part of the state plan for higher education. The consortium was
designed to support New Jersey’s institutions of higher education in their pursuit of
excellence. The mission of NJEDge.Net is to provide collaborative resources and
networked information services to its members and affiliates in support of education;
research and development; outreach and public service; as well as economic development
throughout the state of New Jersey. In providing a statewide network infrastructure,
NJEDge.Net establishes standards for interoperability, achieves economies of scale and
supports new and emerging technology-enabled forms of interinstitutional collaboration
among members and affiliates.
The NJEDge.Net P20 Initiative brings together member institutions and innovators from
primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, libraries, and museums to
extend new technologies, applications, middleware, and content to all educational sectors,
as quickly and connectedly as possible.

Garden State Distance Learning Consortium
