Earth Day Webcast

Earth Day is finished and it was a challenging but very rewarding experience for both my students and myself. The students all did a great job presenting and each group was allowed to choose the visual component that they felt best expressed their topic choices. Overall I think the most effective shttps://i0.wp.com/cephalopodcast.com/img/earthcast08.pngtudent presentations involved the use of slideshare while the students gave their oral component. One group did a VoiceThread, and a couple of groups even did podcasts although they are not uploaded. This first 24 hour Webcastathon will hopefully be the first of many to come. Overall the variety of presentations from other classrooms and teachers was amazing as well as the participation from several different countries.

  1. Derral,
    I am still under the Earth Day – webcastathon spell.
    What a great collaboration activity. I just loved it. It was just a dream to be bale to connect to som many interesting people, and also be able to bring the students in the project. After all, this is what learning technologies are all about.
    I too am looking forward to the projects to come. It can only get better than this – if such thing is possible! 😉
