Using Video Cell Phones for Videoconferencing:  Using Video Cell Phones for Videoconferencing Thomas McNeal & Mark van ’t Hooft NECC 2006, San Diego, California July 6, 2006 Why Not Regular Videoconferencing?:  Why Not Regular Videoconferencing? Traditional videoconferencing systems are expensive and not very easy to use, and therefore may not be accessible to many teachers. Cell phones are mobile and easy to use. It’s New Technology, Not Perfect Yet:  It’s New Technology, Not Perfect Yet Even though two-way videoconferencing using cell phones is not yet widely available, one-way video is and can be a valuable tool for classrooms. Our Project:  Our Project Modern wireless technology has drastically changed how we communicate. It also has the potential to be an educational tool for the classroom teacher. This project was created to: Investigate videophones as an educational tool; Reduce the barriers to videoconferencing for a school; Provide a form of videoconferencing to schools that had none; Demonstrate how resource sites near and far (museums, zoos, etc.) can be valuable tools; Give students the opportunity to talk with local experts when they cannot meet face-to-face. Verizon Video Cell Phones:  Verizon Video Cell Phones Verizon Wireless donated 3 video cell phones with services; These phones (LG VX8100) can take still pictures and 15- second video clips and then send them via email or to websites. Here’s How Our Project Works:  Here’s How Our Project Works The teacher and the students decide on what resource sites they will need more information from in order to enhance their studies. Sites we have used so far include: Stow City Hall (major interview for unit on land use) Cleveland Museum of Natural History (interview with expert on dinosaurs for a unit on dinosaurs) Akron Zoo (interview with an expert about how animals take care of their young and their habitats) Farm (interview with chicken farmer for unit on superstructures. Students were hatching chicks) Roving Reporters:  Roving Reporters Student reporters with phones visit a resource site such as a museum, business, or local political office and interview an expert. At this time they create video clips and pictures files with the videophones. Sending the Media:  Sending the Media Pictures and video can be: Emailed Uploaded to sites like Flickr or youTube Clips and Photos:  Clips and Photos Expert answering questions Demonstrations of a concept How-to video Pictures of the subject being discussed Follow-Up:  Follow-Up Students review the video clips in class as part of their curriculum. Follow-Up Phone Conference:  Follow-Up Phone Conference Next, a phone conference is arranged with the expert, either on the same day the clips are created or on a future date. We use the cell phones for this also! During the phone conference the students speak with an expert keeping detailed notes on the conversation. The students use their notes, clips and pictures to create multimedia reports. It Works!:  It Works! It’s not full videoconferencing (yet) but it works! The students seem to get more out of conversations with experts after they have reviewed the clips (as opposed to just talking to them). Teacher Interview What’s The Next Technology?:  What’s The Next Technology? Live video broadcasting of video using PocketCaster from ComVu Need a mobile device with video recording ability and a data account with your mobile carrier How it Works Demo Video What May Be Possible for Education:  What May Be Possible for Education Frequency 1550 (video): Location-based learning using cell phones, GPS, and UMTS.
