Interview with Robin Ellwood - Part 6 - Earthcast08


Robin Ellwood gave a very interesting and passionate account of her Antarctica explorations. Middle school students asked her questions and she talked about her fascinating experience on the waters of Antarctica. 

 

I divided her talk in small parts having in mind classroom use. Teachers might choose to focus on one aspect of Ms. Ellwood's adventures, so here's my little contribution to the inspiring 2008 EarthCast!

FoodBridges Show #1 Part 1

FoodBridges 1st Show Ever!

Reading Treasures Show - Getting Ready


Webcasting is about letting it flow, letting it take you to unexpected places, voices and encounters. However, the backstage is about planning, preparation. It seems paradoxical, but, in fact, it isn't. To let the voices around you feel at ease, the group of webcasters must have an idea on where they want to head. The final end might be unpredictable, but they need to know what they are doing there to makes everyone comfortable and confident to speak their minds.

Reading Treasures in the Language Classroom - Planning an Interncast Show

Reading Treasures in the Language Classroom

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."

 Frederick Douglass



This will be a piloting project with the LearningwithComputers group.

The idea behind the show is to give voice to LwCers to discuss the topic of the month. In this case, the topic being discussed there is '''reading'''. We'd try it out a first time and depending on our post-show analysis,we'll consider making it a once-a-month encounter.

The goal is to make even stronger bonds through the inclusion of voice in the group with synchronous interactive sharing of ideas. Also, for the educators who can't be present, they'll have a chance to listen to the podcast with practical ideas that could be used in their classrooms.

I'll invite other Webcastacademy members to join me to share the roles while streaming and sharing ideas on how to best carry it out. People to be contacted: Erika Cruvinel, Illya, Cris Costa, Dennis Oliver and Dennis Newson. Special guests: Gladys Baya and Claudia Bellusci.

We could try to have two streamers, in Sandbox A and B. Somebody who would be in charge of the chat area, welcoming people and keeping the text discussion flowing. A host that would be in charge of moderating participation in the Skype Conference.

Next steps:

  • contact interns. Done
  •  Define the best time for the show. Done
  • Send an invitation to LwC asking the ones interested to let us know their skype ID. Done
  •  Planning the show; resources; links; examples - On the way
