Sharon Peters and I just finished our proposal for NECC 2008. We’re in the midst of designing a study to look at how and why chatcasting (thanks David Jakes)/backchanneling is being used in presentations and lecture-based classrooms. It’s really Instant Messaging for learning.
It was so fun – and will continue to be as we run the study – and the collaboration will continue also! It’s really amazing to work with someone on the same wave length … two former English teachers taking turns word smithing.
