Distance Learning Resources

The JCS distance learning program, including school-based videoconferencing equipment, is helping to extend the classroom in support of learning. Whether it be collaborating with classrooms at other schools within the county or visiting an art museum hundreds of miles away, distance learning is connecting Jefferson County students with a unique and enriched learning experience. In partnership with the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC), the JCS Technology Resource Facilitator (TRF) program is creating new opportunities for integrating technology in the classroom to advance learning opportunities.
