VLA Skype Field Trip

Students at the VLA took part in Skype field trip interacting with the National World War II Museum, New Orleans.  Chrissy Gregg, Virtual Classroom Coordinator presented a lesson on Exploring Personal and Collective Responsibility in World War II.  Students were also able to get a real time live virtual tour of the World War II Museum. Chrissy also arranged for our class the opportunity to ask questions of an 89 year old Navy Veteran from World War II, Mr. Johnny DiFatta. Mr. DiFatta fielded questions from students and talked of experiences in the Pacific, on Higgins Boats and how he joined the Navy at 17, in 1943. It was a tremendous opportunty for our students.
