PodcastLogoDraftDigital Chalkie is about to begin live webcasting with the assistance of the Worldbridges network. The ‘webcast’ technique allows us to have listeners ask questions live via the associated chatroom and skypecast. The show will be aimed at bringing teachers together to discuss the use of technology in the classroom, allowing them to share their experiences and gain support from those with expertise in particular areas. It is hoped that these discussions will be webcast on a fortnightly basis. Join Paul Reid and Brad Hicks (and some special guests - hopefully) as they kick off the first Digital Chalkie webcast with a discussion about “classroom blogging” this Wednesday. We will be discussing some of the technical solutions available eg. Wordpress, Blogger, Moodle etc and best practice pedagogy associated with the use of blogs. The first show will go to air on Wednesday the 12th of July at 2.00pm West Australian Time (4pm AEST, 6am GMT). Shows will be available in a ‘podcast’ format after the show. Prior to the show you are invited to submit questions/issues for discussion to webcast@digitalchalkie.com. We’d love to have Digital Chalkie authors join the chatroom and the live discussion (via Skype) on the day. More details about how to do this will be posted in the next few days. A podcast and transcript will be available shortly after the event. We look forward to your support and suggestions for the show.
