Presentation Title
“Webcasting for Educators: Expanding the Conversation”

The “women of web 2.0” have webcasted more than 40 shows covering many topics of relevance to the K-16 educational arena. Using screencasts and video, see how four “ordinary” teachers create a weekly webcast with special guests on topics of relevance to the educational community. We will include snippets of some of our favourite shows and demonstrate the technical and logistical aspects of webcasting. Webcasting has great potential not just for personal learning opportunities for educators, but also for students at almost all levels to broadcast their own shows.
