Working out how to properly moblog on the Brittany trip this year was a real thrill and in some ways an exploration into the unknown. Last year my attempts to use Gabcast while away didn't work out disappointingly and although it was fun to tweet from my mobile phone, I felt I was missing out on the full moblogging experience.
This year, however, was a different story as I was better prepared with my netbook, USB modem, digital camera and iPadio account and to my delight, everything worked! Moreover, it didn't cost me a fortune to boot! The pupils were more than willing to be a guest blogger or phlogger for the day and they rose to the challenge admirably.
Here are all the posts we did while away:
It was a shame my connection speed was not sufficient to publish any audio or video on the trip. So I've included that here instead. First are the daily reflections of the pupils recorded on my iRiver as it was passed around the coach and ferry, second is a slideshow of the photos I took and third are the video clips I captured on my digital camera. Enjoy!
Have a look too at the efforts of language teachers Alex Bellars, Adam Sutcliffe, Gail Haythorne and Andrew Sykes who have also been experimenting with the art of moblogging school trips. I was particularly impressed by the video footage Adam was able to publish thanks to his Flip camera, MacBook and free wifi in his hotel. Smooth moblogging, my friend!
