Abstract: In this article the authors make a case for videoconferencing as a way to diversify middle and secondary classrooms. Through a description of the setup of a videoconference between American pre-service teachers and Moroccan undergraduates, the authors attempt to demystify the use of videoconferencing in middle and secondary education. The authors conclude with suggestions for middle and secondary educators who wish to use videoconferencing as a way to incorporate greater diversity and multicultural education in their classrooms.
