Region 12 Video Conferencing Resources

What is Region 12 Video Conferencing?

Region 12 offers connections to video conferencing through Edlink 12.  We are changing the way that we connect to Region 12.  Instead of using the traditional video conferencing equipment on your campus, you can now connect from any Internet connected device through Zoom.

Video Conferencing provides a unique opportunity for:

  • Virtual field trips
  • Guest speakers
  • Content-inspired expert interviews
  • Class-to-class and class-to-world connections
  • Staff development

TETN Events

Please regularly check the sites below for upcoming TETN events.  If you attend a TETN event and would like to receive credit for the session, please be sure and print the PDF, "TETN Sign-In Sheet" and return it to Region 12 (directions are on the PDF.)  You can find this PDF at the bottom of this page.
