Virtual Classroom Visits

Another way to bring Don’s message and programs into your classroom is via a virtual classroom visit.

Using Skype and similar media, Don can narrate his presentation while you project his images in your classroom.  With the ability for your students to ask their individual questions, the experience is very personal, interactive, and works quite well.  It’s the next best to having Don there in person!

Don has performed virtual classroom visits for schools across the United States and around the world, including schools in South Africa, the United Kingdom, and India.
