Antarctica

Same Antarctica; Different Robin

Well, on short notice, I was able to pull off another webcast on Ustream. I wanted to interview Dr. Robin Bell, a scientist about to head off to the interior of Antarctica. We weren't sure if we could connect, but confirmed everything at noon and had the webcast at 3 pm.

Antarctica Planning - Sept. 22, 2008

This was my first attempt at streaming video. I followed the advice from Alec Couros and had no problems. I experimented off of my ustream account with success. When I switched over to the webcastacademy ustream, I realized I couldn't log in. After a bit of panic and a rescue from JL, I found I had the wrong username. Simple to fix, but it got my adrenaline running!

Interview with Robin Ellwood - Part 7 - EarthCast08

Robin Ellwood gave a very interesting and passionate account of her Antarctica explorations. Middle school students asked her questions and she talked about her fascinating experience on the waters of Antarctica. 

 

I divided her talk in small parts having in mind classroom use. Teachers might choose to focus on one aspect of Ms. Ellwood's adventures, so here's my little contribution to the inspiring 2008 EarthCast!

First interncast on Antarctica

Just posted my first interncast. I had recorded it before our Feb. vacation. I had trouble getting into Sandbox A beforehand and wondered what I was doing wrong. Lee came to the rescue. Figured I was doing everything right, so switched to B and it worked fine. Thanks for the support Lee!

Education on the Road - Antarctica

Interviewed Robin Ellwood, a teacher who will be traveling with a research team to Antarctica again in Nov. 2008. This will be the first in several opportunities to talk with Robin before her trip. We hope we will be able to broadcast from Antarctica too! Stay tuned! Robin's journal is located at www.ryejrhigh.org/ellwood.
