About Us
Through a vital global perspective, CITVC allows students to gain skills necessary for productive problem solving and decision-making. The refinement of these skills is aimed at preparing students to become effective and responsible contributors at the individual, community, state, national and international levels.
Educational technology offers countless possibilities for learning, including videoconferencing, interactive virtual field trips, formal instruction, and dialogue with students, educators, and experts from around the country and the world. This class meets five days a week with a major focus on preparation and participation in videoconferences. It is a Media and Social Studies elective open to juniors and seniors with the drive to become citizens of the world.
