Virtual Author Visit

Yesterday was Ball State University’s first virtual author visit of the school year. Sue Price and Betsy Likens(middle school language arts teachers) joined their classes in order to visit with Betsy Lewin and Doreen Cronin (careful, there’s sound at Doreen’s site!), author-illustrator team of Click Clack Moo. 

Sue and Betsy reported that the experience was worthwhile and exciting for their students.  Students were able to ask several questions during the visit.  The site indicates that the video will be “coming soon.”  It’s not too late to sign up for MyVisit:  Virtual Author Series through Ball State University.  It’s free and a great way to connect students and authors by using technology.
