The students featured in this video are part of a project called "Chatting Across the USA." The project was created by Mrs. Cherrie MacInnes (Maine). Mrs. Carlene Anderson (New Jersey), Mrs. Carmen Stack (Hawaiʻi), Mrs. Sue Ann Clanton (South Dakota), Mrs. Ellen Trzaskowski (Arizona), and Mrs. Dee Bryant (Maine) have been involved in the project from it's beginning over a year ago. Their students have video conferenced with each other, with students from other places, and with important local and national figures. Throughout the process of teaching others about their unique communities the students have experienced a pride in who they are, a joy in learning about others, and an excitement in using technology to collaborate with students from other states. The students' current goal is to Skype with First Lady Michelle Obama. Please support us by watching our video and sharing it with your friends!
