The timing for this tool was actually perfect for me. I will be starting back with students in Broadcasting in the fall and I have asked a high school teacher whose students have experience broadcasting at their campus to join my class in an online session early in the fall to share some of their experience and give pointers to my middle school students as we begin to reconstruct a program. I would anticipate using Skype for the conferencing and perhaps having students post questions beforehand on Wallwisher so the high school students could have an idea what my students wanted to know. The objective is simply to gather knowledge from experienced students who have been doing similar activities for several years and to share that knowledge with my students who will be coming from a background of very limited or no experience.
