Participate in Productive Backchannel Discussions

Educators at Purdue University have used a web-based social media tool called Hotseat to allow students to engage in virtual fields trips called zipTrips. With Hotseat, students can use their laptops or mobile devices to submit and vote on questions they want experts to answer. Then their school can use the free zipTrips to connect, via web streaming and videoconferencing, and interact with scientists at Purdue in real time. The program engages students and gives them a new way to take control of their learning by connecting and collaborating with experts and one another. It gives participating teachers practice with managing the use of social and collaborative online tools with students. The Hotseat tool is freely downloadable for iOS, Android, and the web.
