Broadcasting from an iPad

I am about to launch a “niche” education tech YouTube/ LiveStream Channel in the autumn. I have spent a considerable sum on very expensive cameras and audio equipment. The channel will use new.livestream.com and Wirecast technologies to broadcast out live¬†programming ¬†and recorded content to interested teachers for CPD. The channel will be optimised for the web but tweaked for connected broadcast as well. I am still looking for sponsors for the programme as it will be a quality product that covers all the exciting things happening in computing and ICT in the UK and…

L4L News Playlist

Posted on by leoncych in advisory, Continual Professional Development, databases, Digital Media, distributed networking, Educational Change, Innovation, News, podcasting, teachmeet | Comments Off on L4L News Playlist

I have now put all the 26 L4Lnews broadcasts in one playlist – I’ll be adding to these with a full searchable index later in the year as part of building searchable data that can be extracted from the broadcasts so I can reference them and for academic research purposes. Every broadcast I do now has a trail of data to hep build a picture of CPD activity in the UK at these times.

Tonight I watched the excellent YouTube stream of #TeachMeet Bolton (#tmbolton) set up by David Mitchell . http://youtu.be/IpW8jUgV5sk and http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gEhMIZQPwKI I have been trying to think of a way to capture what goes on at key teachmeets quickly and efficiently for researchers in the future so TeachMeet can be seen to be a viable and sustainable CPD resource or #CPD2.0 as @Dughall put it on the night.
