streaming in the classroom

On Thursday this week I had a lecture in Norwegian class on "Farlige Bøker", dangerous literature in regards to the freedom of speech and violating it in different contexts and how it has been challenged in Norwegian literary history as well as in world literary history. Names such as Agnar Mykle, Salman Rushdie and Anna Politkovskaya.

NRK, Norway's national broadcaster, has a massive archive of in-house programs available for streaming on their website. The program Bokprogrammet presents different thematic approaces to literature and society. I had a specific program in mind (Farlige Bøker, 06.02.2007) that would compliment and exemplify the lecture.

After a brief introduction I used a PC, projector and an online connection to stream the specific programme on the whiteboard. No asking around for a VHS cassette in case some teacher had taped the program a year ago.

great - i hope your experiences with setting it up were good too. i remember the teachers fiddling with the vhs and tv, using half of time trying to make the thing work :)

i am afraid i had to fiddle... reason? i forgot a cable for my mac, so i had to use a student pc instead - but he knew how to to work it so it was no problem really

den ekstrakabelen er det største drawbacket med mac!

har stort sett den kabelen alltid i sekken - fra nå av skal den ligge på skolen ;)
