Time to dust off those Polycom units... the 2015 Presidential Primary
Source Project (PPSP) is here!  Internet2 has put together 20 programs with
10 different national partners for this year, a big expansion over last
year. I encourage you to check out the link below for more information.
Feel free to participate in all of the presentations or just a few.
Internet2 connectivity is of course helpful, but not required.

Feel free to direct questions about PPSP or Internet2 to me.

Subject: Announcing the Presidential Primary Source Project 2015

 Hi All,

 We're pleased to be partnering with the National Park Service, National
Archive Presidential Libraries, and other cultural and historic
organizations to deliver a series of 20 free interactive videoconferencing
programs aimed at grades 6-12 as part of the Presidential Primary Source
Project (PPSP).   Each program will also be streamed live (courtesy of
MAGPI) and archived for on demand viewing.  Idaho Education Network will be
providing video bridging services for each program.

 This year's program series has grown to include 10 participating historic
sites and libraries and will explore, through the extensive use of primary
source documents, how various presidential administrations have influenced
and shaped the human and civil rights issues of their day.

 This effort not only offers K-12 students worldwide unique, high quality
learning experiences but also highlights
the limitless partnership opportunities supported by our strong and
diverse research and education networking community.
