    and you are on the spot you can stream the event so that the news service will pick up the feed and start to collect data and information When you think about this it starts to make you consider all the possibilities both positive and negative From an educational sense many years ago when I worked at Alice Springs School of the Air and as part of the NT Department of Education we explored the use of video backpacks with wireless satellite communications to try and enable the recording and streaming in real time of events presenters locations and activities to broadcast to students and teachers right across the NT that could not make it to these activities We explored the technology and options available and even test some but found that the costs and technology at the time was prohibitive The coverage this morning has just highlighted that we have come such a long way and that if you have a good wireless 3G connection then you can stream with the phone in your pocket For distance education this opens up a huge number of options but even for traditional school the ability to stream parts of an excursion for other classes or connect with experts and other schools whilst out and about is amazing I know that the use of Skype in classrooms is starting to take off and many teachers are exploring and using this tool what I am not sure of is how many are using streaming with others via mobile devices Today marks an interesting point in the development of streaming from mobile devices for news will this awaken the wider populous Comments 0 Trackbacks 0 Permalink Lorem ipsum dolor Tony Richards Friday December 24 2010 Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetur adipiscing elit Fusce vehicula ligula eu felis elementum quis volutpat metus congue Duis in neque nec lectus tincidunt fringilla Curabitur quis mi nisi vel dapibus erat Sed in orci vel lacus aliquet sollicitudin Sed in nisl a purus dictum tristique Proin in elit diam non ultrices nulla Ut volutpat mollis eros id pretium massa luctus et Pellentesque quis leo nec justo tincidunt egestas Vivamus volutpat dolor ut pellentesque semper ligula eros posuere massa laoreet semper sapien magna vel augue Curabitur quis lectus eget orci interdum sagittis ac viverra odio Aenean bibendum lectus nec ante tincidunt sed lobortis tellus viverra Comments 0 Trackbacks 0 Permalink Livescribe Paper Tablet App and Video Tony Richards Tuesday November 23 2010 During November an exciting app was released for the Livescribe Smart Pen Echo model the app called Paper Tablet allows you to use your Echo smartpen as a mouse and turn your dot paper notebooks into an extension of your screen just like a graphics tablet When the pen is connected to your computer via the USB cable your Echo smartpen can be used to mark up slides presentations PDFs documents and spreadsheets quickly and easily Programs that can be used with the app include Word Excel
