Colleagues,

Please help us circulate this Call for Presentations and
Activities for the upcoming Megaconference Jr. to anyone
who may be interested in your areas.

- Deadline for proposals/activities - April 5, 2004
- Deadline for registration - April 15, 2004

We look forward to your involvement!

--------------------------------------------------------------

WHAT IS MEGACONFERENCE JR.?

Megaconference Jr. is a new project designed to give
students in elementary and secondary schools around the
world the opportunity to communicate, collaborate and
contribute to each other's learning in real time, using
advanced multi-point video conferencing technology.
Presenters will design and conduct videoconference-based
presentations and activities focused on both academic
and cultural issues. Participants will be able to
address questions to presenters and to collaborate with
geographically diverse peers in collaborative learning
activities, thus building international cultural
awareness. (more at: http://megaconferencejr.cciu.org)

WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE?

The event will be on May 6, 2004, and it will run from 7
am until 7 pm (EST). The 12-hour duration will make it
possible for schools from many time zones to participate
during their regular school hours.

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?

You can suggest a 15-20 min long presentation and tell
us about an interesting project that you have been doing
in your school. You can suggest activities that could be
organized at "downtimes" between the blocks of
presentations. Or you can join us as participants, with
no special presentation given from your side.
(Questions at the end of presentations are more than
welcome from everyone).

WHO CAN BE A PRESENTER?

Students, teachers and technical staff members.

WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE PRESENTATION PROPOSAL?

A couple of paragraphs with a short description of the
program/topic/project you would like to present, and the
names of the people who will be presenting. Note that
timing will be very important so keep it to a 15-20 min
maximum. Also, give us the time frame that would work
best for you and your school (example: 9 am - 2 p.m. EST
-Eastern Standard Time). We cannot guarantee best timing
for your presentation but we can certainly try to
accommodate as many as possible.

WHAT SHOULD ACTIVITIES LOOK LIKE?

*    Group singing in native language with direct
      cultural tie-in/native dance
*    Mini concerts with your school song
*    Different groups playing (or singing) the same song
      simultaneously
*    Quiz bowl
*    Sports competition, like virtual free throw contest
*    "Bring and play an unusual instrument"
*    "Show and tell"
*    ... And any other idea you may have - describe it
      to us in a few sentences!

WHAT TECHNOLOGY DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE?

You will need Internet2 or comparable high-speed
connection. All presentations must be made using H.323
technology, preferably at 768K, and they will be made
from the presenter's location.

WOULD I BE ABLE TO REHEARSE?

Yes, all presenters will be required to test their
connections prior to the event and rehearse their
presentations.

CONTACT:
