5-10 min. One class presents
5-10 min. The other class presents.
5-10 min. Ask each other questions.

Here’s what needs to happen next.

  • Teachers: Please email each other to discuss further.
  • Techs: We are hoping to do test calls between Berrien RESA's bridge and the UK schools on March 25 between 1:00 and 2:00 pm UK time. Stay tuned for more info.
