Colegio Brader - Student Contributions

During video-conferencing in 2012 students from a school in Panama video-conferenced with a school in Bridgewater New Jersey.

Ileana Cotes from Panama writes:

I want to express my gratitude for inviting our students to participate in the video-conferences one more time. You have no idea how much they enjoy doing this. It is a remarkable lesson for all of us. I hope your audience learned a lot from our students' presentations. We are looking forward next year videoconferences!
 
Regards,

Ileana
