Government primary school children in Cayman Island have been talking to each other and to their counterparts in Bermuda and Seattle by video conferencing. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Thanks to the efforts of Information & Communications Technology, children were given the opportunity to speak to other students at other primary school sites and ask questions of common interest. This was done, not with expensive video conferencing equipment, but with a webcam, microphone, multimedia projector and external speakers, said a press release from the school. The webcam enabled the students to see and speak to each other and the projector and speakers were used for whole class comfort.
