Hacking the Backchannel: Inspired Learning in the Digital World

Jennifer Hogan tells Hack Learning creator Mark Barnes about her initial experience with the backchannel, which it turns out she may have unwittingly created decades ago. Hogan, an Alabama principal, #USedchat co-founder and global education consultant, conducted an online chat with her students, using, get this, an old AOL chat room, where she discovered some amazing things about teaching and learning in the digital world. In this episode, Hogan explains how that AOL chat turned a shy kid into a classroom star, and she shares two examples of using modern backchannels in today's classroom. Not sure how to use a backchannel for teaching and learning? Hogan reveals this too--all in under 10 minutes. This is Hacking the Backchannel.
