Back Channel Dialogging in Class Greetings Sequoyah,
No not Shirley MacClaine. Back Channels are a platform or website where participants discuss the material in real time. There is a great article that came across my twitter feed today on Back Channels (http://www.edutopia.org/blog/backchannel-student-voice-blended-classroom-beth-holland).The article details the process of students writing during the class. It is not really note taking but more of a dialogue between all the students. As we move into the digital age in the classroom the Back Channel will become a valuable tool in our digital toolbox. In fact it is the very thing the Redefinition in the SAMR model is trying to achieve.
