Distance Learning

In September of 2016 we commemorated the 15th anniversary of September 11th with this distance learning event

Action to Honor
Friday, September 9, 2016

Students and teachers are invited to join a live, distance learning session on Friday, September 9 as part of the 15th anniversary observance of September 11, 2001. This educational video conference is made possible through partnership between the National Park Service, Internet2, and the Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research.
The free, one-hour program will be broadcast live from Flight 93 National Memorial twice so student audiences coast-to-coast have the opportunity to participate.
The distance learning program, Action to Honor is focused on grades 6-12 and goes live at 9:30 a.m. EDT, followed by a second live program at 1 p.m. EDT. Rangers from the National Park Service will explain how the memorial honors the Flight 93 passengers and crew, share their story and explore the symbolism that can be found throughout the site today. Students will have the opportunity to submit questions during interactive 50-minute broadcast. Although the program is free, educators are required to register for the electronic field trip at https://goo.gl/vRnpvE.
“This program allows memorial staff to reach nationwide and begin relaying the events of 15 years ago to students who may not have even been born,” said Steve Clark, superintendent of Flight 93 National Memorial. “We invite schools worldwide to join in this unique opportunity to connect to a memorial which honors the extraordinary actions of the 40 passengers and crew of Flight 93.”
In addition to the distance learning programs, the memorial will provide live stream web programming between the broadcasts from9 a.m. until 3 p.m. EDT. For live stream access to the broadcast, users can connect at http://flight93.internet2.edu/.
