its that time of year when we turn our thoughts to the annual Christmas ed- techy fest that is Online Educa Berlin. For the last few years we have run live conference radio – The Sounds of the Bazaar from the conference. And a lot of fun it has been, too.
But this year we wanted to do something a bit different. We wanted to provide a workshop for those interested in internet radio. And we wanted to experiment with new formats. So here is the line up.
Wednesday 30 November – 1800 (near the bar)
Live Radio: Welcome to OnLine Educa
Our first day programme will capture delegates’ expectations of this year’s conference and highlights from the pre-conference workshops. We will be talking to the organizers about the behind-the-scenes activity, some of the exhibitors about why Educa is important to them and giving speakers the chance to advertise their sessions.
Thursday 1 December – 11.45 (room to be announced)
Live radio: Question Time
Educa’s very own live radio debate with a colourful panel of experts responding to your topical, polemic or simply whimsical questions about technology and learning with plenty of chance to fight back. Audience and speakers will be kept under control by our ruthless chairman Graham Attwell.
Thursday 1 December – 15.00 (room to be announced)
Workshop: Have fun with internet radio
What is it? How can it be used for teaching and learning? What equipment is needed and how much does it cost? Also your chance to create content, structure programmes, learn presenting, interviewing and studio skills and put them into practice in Friday’s live radio show!
Friday 2 December – time to be announced (near the bar)
Live Radio: Live on Friday
A full hours’ programme of news, views and gossip. There are interviews with speakers, a chance to catch up with key issues from sessions you missed, feedback from delegates and opportunities for you to contribute. For the first time at Educa, the programme will be produced by participants from Thursday’s Radio workshop.
Are you coming to Educa? if so there will be lots of chances to join in – as part of the audience in Question Time or through the workshop and live programme on Friday. or perhaps you have an idea or project you would like to talk about on the programmes.
And even if you can’t make one or more of the sessions, we are always happy to catch up over a pint in the bar! Just twitter, email or skype us.
