Sure there is alot of garbage on TV these days, but that doesn't mean the medium can't be used for some good. Suttons Bay Elementary School setup a "virtual field trip" via TV to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C to learn about American Indians and art.
An interactive machine with a voice-sensitive camera atop the television in their classroom linked them to a museum expert.
The fifth-grade students were able to ask questions and talk with the museum expert. Pretty cool!
