The Ohio Historical Society offers wonderful programs aligned to standards as well as encouraging the students to use critical thinking to come to conclusions. They are entertaining as well as informational.

Excellent presentation. Great visuals. Loved the interactivity of the presentation.

The eyes of the students were on the presenters almost 100% of the time...wish I could achieve that!

The characters made this very interesting and it was interesting to hear the stories. It really made the history more interesting then what I remember in school!

Excellent realistic presentation and interaction. Thought-provoking. Our Seniors loved it! The presentation came over as factual,informational and entertaining. Appropriate for engaging our assisted living residents.

Without a doubt - this is the BEST video conference I have ever done. Extremely interactive and well-organized.
