Ustream is a service that lets you stream live content to a web based service, it has many uses to get people’s messages out there to the wider world but I want to focus on it from an educational point of view
I have often felt that so much goes on around school, especially after school or during tutor time. This however just gets mentioned in an email or the newsletter. Ustream gives you the option to live stream the events for others to share, either in real time or when it suits them.
A good example is when sports teams are playing matches, to heighten the exposure of these students why not stream the game? Drama productions, stream s rehearsal or section of it to built up awareness of the event.
Lots of uses for it, just be creative, you could even set up a reporting team to do the work for you, digital news team?
