Hour Of Code: Look What We Made!
EdChat Interactive ShinDig!
What is a ShinDig?
Shindig is a NYC start-up committed to unleashing the unrealized potential of video chat. Shindig's proprietary technology enables you to give an online reading, talk, or interview in front of an online group of 50 to 1000. In Shindig, you can share the stage with fans and take questions from audience members. Additionally Shindig adds a unique social dimension to events by allowing fans themselves to also interact with one another in private video chats.
What is EdChat Interactive?
The three of us saw an opportunity to conduct PD more in tune with the way we learn, and to use technology to bring the skills and knowledge of education thought leaders to hundreds of thousand of educators.
People don't learn just by watching. We need to interact, reflect, and participate. That's our model, in 45 minute segments that fit into the busy lives of educators.
I concur with Dr. Quaglia's three factors that make up the Achievement Gap:
- Relationship Gap
- Participation Gap
- Expectation Gap
