  1. A big thank you to SD23 Central School’s Mark Hauk for getting a virtual field trip off the ground. Getting to share slides, photos and interview with survivors and soldiers Jimmy Lee, Sterling Cale, Herb Weatherwax was insightful for our Socials and History 12 classes. Thanks to Pacific Historic Parks, Hawaii for their collaboration with Center for Interactive Learning & Collaboration (CILC). The LifeSize interactive equipment was a powerful tool. ‘Living’ textbooks add a great dimension.
