Summer Fun with Seesmic

I've been thinking, writing, and speaking of late about the fourth 'R'... Relationship; and I can see how Seesmic has the potential to personalize participation in any of a number of learning networks.

Educators (and their classes) can now leverage microphones and cameras to participate in engaging asynchronous conversations on a range of topics. Care to test it out?

So how do we know that this is Rodd and not Todd?

My class is a heavy user of http://viddler.com Sounds like the same as seesmic.

Meant to add this...
You can comment right on the video with viddler. So when the video is playing the comment pops right up. My kids interviewed one of the guys there, nice bunch of folks. Have to plug their interview! http://lunchtimeleaders.podOmatic.com/entry/2008-03-18T16_46_41-07_00

Paul, the link didn't work, but the root led me to revisit a few episodes... I found the Viddler podcast on March 18th.

I remember seeing this image and saving the link when I dropped in for a few minutes of an interview with a vice principal earlier this spring. After putting it in my 'read later' folder, I never got around to it. This summer, I hope to do some catching up!

haha - the 'read later' folder. i recenrly found four levels deep of 'read later' folders within mine. it is a concept that is bound to fail. at least for me...

Hi,

You speak about knowing your audience. I'll try to post a clip on seesmic too.

Till then, I would like to tell you that your blog and podcasts are appreciated and were commented on cirip.ro microblogging platform, which can embed multimedia objects, also live seesmic, and provide groups, especially used in education. Searching 'thecleversheep' will show you the notes about your blog and podcasts.

Right now I have published your invitation to be seen by our community.

Thanks and a wonderful summer,
Carmen

Thanks Carmen! Is cirip.ro a Romanian tool? It has a very twitter-like vibe, but the option of embedding content into a micro-blog post is compelling...

Hi, Rodd,

Thanks for your comment.

Cirip.ro was developed by my company Timsoft, a Romanian eLearning firm. Other interesting options are feeds monitoring and private and public groups.

We hope very soon to host international educational groups. Of course you are welcome.

Best,
Carmen
