Read Around the Planet is a celebration of NEA’s Read Across America. Classrooms use interactive video to connect with other classrooms and celebrate reading. The activity is sponsored by TWICE and Polycom.
This activity is open to all K-12 students (ages 6-18) in public and private schools who have access to two-way interactive video equipment (IP H.323 or ISDN H.320).
