live blogging is so cool!

Hi all. Yesterday my AP biology students had the opportunity to collaborate with Todd Mayville's Theory of Knowledge class in a live blogging session.

This was my first time using cover it live and it is really cool!. Kind of like instant messaging simultaneously between 30+ people! The topic was "How do filters affect our Knowledge" which as a prompt took the discussion in many different directions. An archive of the dialogue can be accessed here.

This was a new experience for almost all of my students and the feedback was very positive. I observed students engaged, enjoying the activity and realizing the power of such a tool.

Access was easy and immediate due to Todd placing the link on his blog and me emailing the link to my students,

So, check out

It has lots of possibilities.

Thanks Todd (aka Mr. Live Blog!)
