Hello – 

 

I am pleased to advise you of the opportunity to observe a series of distance learning events on Tuesday, March 11, focused on Emergency Preparedness Week.  The events center on the disaster in Greensburg, Kansas, where a tornado nearly wiped out a small Kansas community.   These events will be available by video via both the commodity Internet and Internet2.

 

Classrooms from the region (Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and North Dakota) will be participating, live, in the events.  You can observe them via a live video stream (see below).  The regional collaboration is a partnership of state networks affiliated by membership in Internet2:  Kan-ed, KanREN, MOREnet of Missouri, EduTech of North Dakota, ONEnet of Oklahoma and the Great Plains Network.
