How to Fund Video Conferencing for Your Classroom

By Maria Fico and John Ellrodt

Over the past three years the demand for video conferencing in the classroom has grown significantly. As the bandwidth necessary for quality video calls has become more readily available, an increasing number of schools and central offices are utilizing video conferencing as a convenient and reliable tool to bring administrators, teachers, and students together - anytime and anyplace.

Classrooms require room-based video conferencing systems for successful collaboration. Small web cams, although inexpensive and readily available for desktop video conferencing, do not serve a classroom of students who want to consult with a subject matter expert, nor a group of teachers or principals who wish to participate in a professional development session. The challenge for schools, however, is finding the funds needed to purchase video conferencing technology.

Digital Age Learning (DAL), a group specializing in the practical integration of collaborative technologies with educational programs, has the solution to this challenge. DAL brings video conferencing into classrooms by seeking, applying for, and securing grant funding. Over the past four years, the members of DAL have secured more than 12 million dollars in public and private grant funds to pursue video conferencing projects in schools.
