Our Talk With Roy Christopher

HERE is the link to our video conference with Roy Christopher. Thanks to each of you for making this such a great experience!


  1. That is very "high tech" as the kids might say. I want to hear more about this role playing idea, that sounds interesting.

  2. Just wanted to say I thought it was really generous for them to take the time out of their lives to do this and really grateful I'm in the type of class where this is possible.


  3. I'd just like to say that i agree with Jojo and am very happy that i was able to be part of the great experience we had today in class. I am thankful that Roy Christopher and Ted Newcomb took time out of their lives to speak with our class, who is trying to use 2.0 technology to better our lives and those of others.
    And most of all,thank you Dr.Preston for making us your priority.

  4. Thanks for your comments-- and Marie, you're welcome and it is truly my pleasure. I've heard from the "men and women in the TV" too and they were equally energized by seeing and hearing from us. I came away from the experience with two main impressions: 1)This is one powerful way of extending our educational opportunity; and 2)The more value we contribute to a community (whether online or in real life), the more the community will respect, trust and encourage us. As I reflect on Wednesday's talk-- and all the work students are doing this year, both online and offline-- I am very, very proud of you all.
