As you know, your student will be participating in a live video conference with Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, this Thursday, February 28th, from about 8:30 am until 10:15 am. In addition to the videoconference, we are going to attempt to stream some audio and video out to those of you who might be interested. We will be using Ustream, and our “channel” is available at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ahsawnm . In addition, you’ll be able to watch some of the students live blog the discussion using CoverItLive at http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com/2008/02/ustreaming-and-live-blogging-daniel.html. Both of those should hopefully become active at approximately 8:30 am on Thursday.
Our primarily goal is to simply get the video conference and discussion with Mr. Pink to work. If the Ustream and/or CoverItLive don’t work, we’ll briefly troubleshoot those but then let it go and simply focus on the rest. We want the students to focus on this incredible opportunity to discuss the book with the author, so if our attempts to provide some live feeds out to you don’t work we’ll be disappointed, but that’s not our primary purpose – we know you’ll understand.
