Backchannel in the Classroom using TodaysMeet

7 03 2010

TodaysMeet helps you embrace the backchannel and connect with your audience in realtime.
Encourage the room to use the live stream to make comments, ask questions, and use that feedback to tailor your presentation, sharpen your points, and address audience needs.

What is the Backchannel?
Passing notes: the backchannel of the 20th century.
The backchannel is everything going on in the room that isn’t coming from the presenter.
The backchannel is where people ask each other questions, pass notes, get distracted, and give you the most immediate feedback you’ll ever get.
Instead of ignoring the backchannel, TodaysMeet helps you leverage its power.

Tapping into the backchannel lets you tailor and direct your presentation to the audience in front of you, and unifying the backchannel means the audience can share insights, questions and answers like never before.

If you still aren’t sure about what backchannel is or how it may be of use to you in the classroom check out a post by Silvia Tolisano called “Backchanneling with Elementary School Students”. It is a great article.
