On April 22, 2008, there will be a webcastathon for 24 hours in celebration of Earth Day. The 24 hours are counted in GMT or Greenwich Mean Time, which though Greek to me, starts the day before where I live. So It's Elementary will have a special showing on April 21st at 1:00 GMT. The earthcast kickoff is the hour beforehand, Monday April 21st at 0:00 GMT. Those zeros are where I get lost, but someone who knew my timetravel challenges has hyperlinked all the times to a global calendar so we can easily find a time where each of us lives. Thank you Matt Montagne!
The earthcast will be broadcast to the world via the edtechtalk channel of the worldbridges network.
This is the promotional flyer, which anyone may print and distribute, is the creation of Pam Shoemaker. The Earth Day Planning site has many resources for planning.

Please leave a comment with your students on the Earthcast Voicethread.
Anyone worldwide can participate in carrying the webcast through the hours when we in the USA are sleeping. If you are reading this and you are in a country outside of the USA, especially on the Asia continent (read whom?...) then please contact Matt Montagne via email to participate. Or contact me by leaving a comment here with an email address and I will forward your information directly to Matt.

Sounds like a great idea. We are participating in Project Global Cooling with Clay Burell from Korea International School and a host of other schools who have gotten involved. We are holding a concert at our school (Melbourne, Australia) on April 19th to raise awareness about global warming and how we can reduce our carbon footprint. We are going to try and ustream the concert. This would be a good follow up activity - can you forward me some details. Email is jennyl@toorakc.vic.edu.au.

I am collecting examples of how educators are using Voicethread in their classroom or for professional development on a wiki at: http://voicethread4education.wikispaces.com/

My plan is to share these examples with other technology teachers who provide professional development in their schools.

Feel free to add your own examples or links to resources. Thanks in advance,
