TV does have some good uses…

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!
