North Carolina School of Science and Math is playing host to a number of educators who will tune in a national conference through distance learning.

The educators are able to watch and participate in the Keystone Conference, which continues today in Indianapolis.

The Durham-based school is one of some 80 remote sites linked to the event. Others are as far away as Australia.

A key point of emphasis for the conference is interactive videoconferencing technology like that being used to link the remote sites.

The School of Science and Math hosts more than 50 videoconferencing sessions each week, utilizing the North Carolina Information Highway.
