Before the ICT technology enables video streaming from classroom, teaching trainees were physically present in the classroom. A large number of "foreign" people among children changed the observed environment. To minimize the disturbance effect, we set the test classroom where only: remote control camera was present; teaching trainee; and pupils' teacher. Didactical expert and students who used to be present inside the classroom, and were now in the remote location, noticed different attitude of pupils. Pupils were more relaxed and more cooperative. Initial pilot project was success. It was not perfect but definitely something worth further research. This test was only part of international project between different European countries, where we want to exchange video stream across different teacher training facilities and language obstacles. In the article, we present the pilot project and future topics we want to research. But analyzing the project results and possibilities of establishing permanent international classroom video communication network raised ethical obstacles.
