MOREnet will be hosting three videoconferences with streaming video from School of the Osage Junior High in Osage Beach, Mo. The events will originate from Mr. Grecian's classroom at the times below.
Use the links below to watch recordings of the events.
Chris Pickering (Chief Investigator with the Missouri Attorney General's Office) and Lt. Joe Laramie (MO ICAC Task Force) will talk with junior high students at Missouri school and around the U.S. on Internet safety topics and how to be safe online. Tim Gore of Roundtrips will facilitate the discussion with technical support provided by Jim Sturm of Roundtrips and MOREnet Video staff. MOREnet Video will bridge the events and encode the events to our live streaming server. MOREnet will also record the streamed events and make the content available following the event for later use. A remote site will be hosted at the MITC Conference during the Postscripts Sessions where teachers from around Missouri will also be able to participate in the event.
We need you to host a connecting event! It is so easy to participate, and the impact can be so profound. Here's how you can get involved.
Select an event location that has either an Internet-connected computer with projector or videoconferencing equipment and can host the number of people you think are likely to attend. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your location.
Decide how you want to connect to the main event. You can either connect online via streaming video using a projector to show the video to your audience, or you can connect via interactive videoconferencing. The videoconferencing is more interactive, but also requires a little more technical know-how to achieve. The MOREnet Video group is available to assist videoconference sites with connecting. Regardless of which connection method you choose, your audience will be able to interact in real time with the School of the Osage event and the other locations. Participants can ask questions at email@example.com, and our moderator will pose the questions to panelists in real time.
Now that your event is set, invite everyone to come! MOREnet can help by providing some promotional materials. We have posters, sample press releases, public service announcements and live interview FAQs on our website for you to use! And if you need something else, we are here to help.
