In this morning's OZ/NZ Educators Flashmeeting, Jess McCulloch introduced us to new live blogging tool Cover IT Live a type of moderated chatroom which could be used across classrooms anywhere in the world as any new message can be approved by the teacher before going live.
The chat window can be embedded on a blog and once the session has finished it can be replayed too. There is also a cool voting tool too.
During the chat, the teacher can add images, audio or video files and can give permission for certain pupils to contribute without moderation. See Jess describing Cover IT Live below and check out the links above to find out more about how we got on.
Have a listen too to this longer explanation from Jess who I skyped after the meeting. Thanks Jess for sharing.
