SpaceCast #1- Up and Flying!

We have gotten our first SpaceCast edited and ready to add to our blog. After playing the recording to the rest of my students, they were sure they could come up with a much more entertaining show for future broadcasts. I encouraged everyone to write their scripts so we have alot of new ideas ready to go.

We had trouble getting on air at school and we need to improve our sound but anything new takes time to perfect! Everyone is getting used to the idea of being part of a live show and have started blogging like crazy in their Personal Learning Space to find out what this new technology is all about and who these students are talking to them on the show. Take a listen and please give us your comments and suggestions. We really want our SpaceCast to fly!

Alex Ragone and Arvind Grover - Introductions - Webcast #1

This is our first try at webcasting. We discussed our backgrounds, and what type of topics we would like to discuss in the future. We had some issues with dropping packets, but you can make up most of the audio on the mp3. Check out our blogs at Learning Blog and 21 Apples.

Webcast Academy at the Podcast Academy

You can listen to streaming audio on Channel One of proceedings from the Podcast Academy at the College of Communication at Boston University.

Visit the Podcast Academy page and click on "Watch the Webcast" to view a live Real Media streaming video of proceedings from Boston.

Volume Control

Here's a Flash file that I put together that outlines the "issues" I had during tonight's edtechtalk brainstorm. As Jeff said, although you couldn't hear him over the stream, even those of us who've been 'casting for a while still get tripped up by the details from time to time.

Google Calendar for Webcast Academy Practice Sessions

Here's a link to the feed for a calendar I just put together in Google Calendar for Webcast Academy Practice Sessions to test the interface. From what I can see, it seems to work quite well. It'll be interesting to see how it reacts to more "members" being added.

Online collaboration

The internet radio network has provided an opportunity for the growth of homespun, 'net-based radio.

I've had the good fortune to be able to participate as a webcaster and interact with people from literally all over the globe. This provides a perspective and a dynamic that has heretofore been impossible, which makes it all the more exciting.

For the past while I've been hosting the EdTechTalk Brainstorming Sessions on Thursday nights (in North America) in which we discuss education technology and how it may be applied by educators.
