This podcast is a recording from our third online brainstorming session for the StoryChasers project on August 21, 2008. I was joined by Cheryl Lykowski, a 5th grade teacher from Michigan as well as James Sigler, a 3rd grade teacher from Missouri. We will convene a fourth brainstorming session (and hopefully our last one before formally announcing the project and sending our invitations to others to participate via the CILC and ePals) next week on Wednesday, August 27, 2008 at 9 pm Eastern / 8 pm Central time. Please join us if you can! Also please contribute to our project wiki, and join our learning community on our main website if you have not already. Refer to our podcast shownotes for these links as well as a link to the text chat transcript. The website description of StoryChasers currently reads: Storychasers is a multi-state (and potentially multi-national) educational collaborative empowering students and teachers to responsibly record and share stories of local, regional and global interest as citizen journalists. Where STN (Student Television Network) participants may focus more narrowly on student broadcast news productions, Storychasers has a broader focus on not only student-created news broadcasts, but also student-created documentary films and live event coverage (webcasting). Storychaser media productions can be shared as live broadcast events or recorded, asynchronously shared audio and video files.
