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.

Best,
Pat

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.

More information on the individual programs and the schedule, please see https://internet2.box.com/s/iwcs8vqy6fh0ajy849r9
