Readily available web streaming technologies now make it possible for anyone, anywhere to launch a web radio station and broadcast live or pre-programmed content with little more than some free software and standard computer equipment or mobile device. The panelists will use the webstream created for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in digital storytelling (DS106) at the University of Mary Washington as a starting point for a discussion of the pedagogical potential of web radio and its power to inspire experimentation, foster creativity, establish community, and provide a platform for informal learning and collaboration.

 

Panelists include:

Grant Potter, e-Learning Coordinator, University of Northern British Columbia
Jim Groom, Instructional Technologist, University of Mary Washington
Michael Branson Smith, AssistantProfessor of Communications Technology, York College, CUNY
GNA Garcia, Doctoral Candidate, Educational Psychology, University of Connecticut; CEO, Learning Allies
