Videoconferencing Sessions on the Iowa Communications Network (ICN)
Iowa's K-12 educators are invited to register online for School to Careers videoconferencing
sessions with career professionals featured in the database. Iowa Public
Television (IPTV) personnel schedule sessions throughout the year via the
Iowa Communications Network (ICN). Consult the "K-12 Calendar" for the upcoming
offerings. There is no cost associated with these sessions for Iowa educators.
