We used Skype today for me to present live from Iceland to a group of teachers gathered for a workshop with Dean Shareski in Saskatchewan. Through Skype video and Dean flipping Firefox tabs with me, I did my first remote presentation of 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story
Crazy! Dean was even ustreaming it, so there is also a recorded archive:
Thanks Dean for setting this up. The technology worked flawlessly, the speaker maybe less so. It is always a bot detached presenting when you cannot really see much of the audience, but when they busted out laughing at the Blabberize talking Alpaca, I knew they were on target.
And talk about good timing! Just a few hours earlier, I picked up a ping from Jim Groom and had another stellar example, a student project report created in Glogster.
Please, if you create or come across some good educational examples done in any of the 50 Tools, leave a note in the discussion tab of my wiki. I sit on an RSS feed for that one and will add it to the other examples.
Thanks again Dean! And darned, I learned the hard way that Tim Horton is dead (you need to see the video to understand). Still, a good story can be done with his ghost…
