Classroom 2.0 LIVE! - Saturday Shows

From Peggy George:

To all of our very special friends and supporters of Classroom 2.0 LIVE, many of whom have been with us for the entire 9.5 years since we began back in 2009, I have some sad news to announce today. After lots of soul searching and many conversations among our co-moderators, Advisory Team members, and Steve Hargadon, we have decided that the time has come to retire our live webinars. We have made so many great connections, both with presenters and participants, and have really enjoyed being able to provide so many outstanding, timely shows that have helped all of us to learn many ways to integrate technology into our classrooms and professional lives. While we love what we have been able to do and especially value the extensive Livebinders that continue to be a valuable resource to use and share, we have concluded that what we are doing is no longer unique and we are unable to compete with the incredible number of similar opportunities available for free for educators.

Over the past 6 months we have been concerned that we have plateaued out with a fairly low number of participants each week and have not been able to increase the number of participants. When we invite presenters to spend their time to share their expertise and passions with us, we are disappointed that we cannot provide an audience larger enough to make it worth their while. We explored many alternatives to consider what we could change. We discussed switching to an alternative platform, changing to a monthly show, shortening the show to 30 minutes, changing the day from Saturdays, changing the format to an open mic format where we would discuss topics and share resources rather than having presentations, among other things. We know it has been a challenge for new participants to struggle with the login demands of Blackboard Collaborate but that is just one of the factors. In the end, we concluded that it has been an incredible run but that it is time for us to retire the live show. Our website, archived recordings and Livebinders will continue to be available to everyone and we know our friendships and connections with people around the world will continue.

On the Classroom 2.0 LIVE! site (http://live.classroom20.com) you'll find the recording and Livebinder from the shows. Click on the Archives and Resources tab.
