If you have seen the tweet about using Google Hangouts on Air to build a chain of expertise networks then you’ve come to the right place.
The idea is simple – I want teachers, and especially senior managers to build a chain of localised CPD that can be aggregated and distributed.
I need people to sign up to hold a weekly seminar at distance to:
- Orchestrate a Google Hangout on Air about a chosen subject in depth over an hour.
- Annotate and archive resources discussed.
- Archive and curate the sessions for a nationwide chain of CPD resources and join organisations to build a knowledge CPD infrastructure.
I want this to be different from an online TeachMeet session and more of a reflective practice / sharing of wider management skills.
I don’t want it to mirror the fast full, flow of #UKEDCHAT – I want it to be a slow burn, reflective session that will get people to demonstrate everyday practical things they have implemented in their schools.
People involved would agree to:
- Make sure they have the kit we recommend or equivalent for best video and audio broadcast (we do not make a penny from any of this) or high quality equivalent (total cost £300 or less)
- Be prepared to clear all video and IPR materials shown on a Google Hangout on Air
- Be prepared to agree to a respectful protocol and positive discussion about concrete practical strategies for moving learning on.
The first Google hangout session will be with the first 9 people who can convince me they can do this and have enough will to amplify the sessions.
I will outline what is needed and how to use it, IPR issues and practical strategies. I will also demonstrate the qualities of Google Hangouts on Air and the medium’s Strengths and Weaknesses.
Depending on interest it will be a 2 hour session on Wednesday 23rd May from 20:00 – 21:00 BST and I’ll open it out to the world but have 9 people who are willing to start the first nodes in that session. We will try to see how to amplify this later.
