First, we welcome new Crew member Iowa State University mechanical engineering student Taylor Meyer to the show where she does one terrific job, and while the rest of the Crew took the night off, she was there to keep Corey in line. Corey actually promised that he’d turn over a responsibility to her on the next show, we’ll see if that happens.

Corey had previously talked with Elaine, Andy, Greg and Rob in another podcast interview about their work together, the technology and usage in teaching World History and video conferencing in the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. Even further discussion here on this show about the technology and usage, along with learning more about the rural, remote Kenai Peninsula in south central Alaska.

An outstanding episode which explores beyond some of the common usages and boundaries of education and technology as we know them, and reveals the work of two amazing teachers in a remote rural area of the U.S. (along with some good fun too).

So sit back, plug in and experience…

The AV Life.
