Video Conferencing (VC)

Bring the world into your classroom with VC technology! 

Videoconferencing has moved from a novelty to a useful tool in schools where the classes have access to a VC unit on a regular basis. Teachers agree that there is a definite impact on student engagement. They feel that it helps develop an appreciation for learning. They appreciate the way it opens up the world to their students and they enjoy being able to offer opportunities to their students to virtually visit places they otherwise would never get to.

Schools/Centres within SWLSB with VC units:
  • Arundel Elementary
  • Crestview Elementary
  • Grenville Elementary
  • Franklin Hill Elementary
  • Laurentian Elementary
  • Rawdon Elementary
  • Joliette High School
  • Laurentian Regional High School
  • Laval Liberty High School
  • Mother Teresa Junior High 
  • CDC Vimont
  • CDC Pont-Viau
  • SWLSB Board Office

Schools without a VC unit also have access to a portable system. All you need is access to an internet connection and a display unit such as a smart board, projector or TV.
