10 Ways to use Backchannels in your Classroom
There are a wide variety of free web tools that teachers can use to create backchannels and hold synchronous conversations and discussions in the classroom. Over the last couple of years I had the chance to experiment with and review some of the best of these backchanneling tools.

Back-channeling in the Classroom : Webinar Archive
Back-talk in the classroom is not good, but back-channeling is great! In this session participants will learn about free micro-blogging services, polling services, and chat services that they can leverage to improve in-classroom conversations and extend those conversations beyond the physical classroom. These techniques will get even the most shy of students involved in classroom discussions.

Spectacle at Web2.0 Expo
Last week, I gave a talk at Web2.0 Expo. From my perspective, I did a dreadful job at delivering my message.
Yet, the context around my talk sparked a broad conversation about the implications of turning the backchannel into part of the frontchannel.

5 Ways to Use Twitter to Avoid a Backchannel Disaster
What do you do when you’re giving a presentation, and notice that your audience is looking down, busily typing on their laptops and smartphones? And what about when you get the sense that they are turning against you?
This new dynamic has led to high-profile blowups between presenters and audiences, which makes it more important than ever for presenters to do the right things to avoid similar disasters.

Digital Backchannels in Shared Physical Spaces

Digital Backchannels in Shared Physical Spaces: Experiences at an Academic Conference
There are a variety of digital tools for enabling people who are physically separated by time and space to communicate and collaborate.
Widespread use of some of these tools, such as instant messaging and group chat, coupled with the increasingly availability of wireless Internet access, have created new opportunities for using these collaboration tools by people sharing physical spaces in real time.
Such ‘digital backchannels’ affect interactions and experiences in a variety of ways, depending on the spaces, the participants, and the relationships among them.

Backchannel Modes

Backchannel Modes
So I’m one of those people that conference speakers hate. I sit in the audience, 17” Powerbook open in my lap, with IRC windows, AIM chats, blog entry screens, and web pages drawing my attention away from their faces.
The thing is, they really don’t have any less of my attention than they used to, before I started multitasking in meetings. It’s just more visually obvious now.
I can consistently identify three modes in a non-projected IRC channel—and a fourth that kicks in when the channel is public (or the hecklebot is in play).

Confessions of a backchannel queen
In a pre-WiFi world, I would have sat quietly at my table, listened a bit, doodled a bit more, maybe contemplated (but not acted on) introducing myself to some of the luminaries in the room during breaks
But today the room was laptop-enabled, with power and Wifi to spare...so I headed straight for IRC.

Bridging Diverse Groups
http://bit.ly/cwVlEH
Backchanneling. I finally realized why selective backchanneling irks me. One thing that i bank on at conferences is that the attendees create a cohesive view of being annoyed with the conference. This happens because no one attends a conference for the content; they attend to talk to people.
The thing about the IRC backchannel is that it's *obvious* that there is a second-place to the conference.

The Back Channel of Conference Presentations
What was infinitely more compelling than our own presentation was the fact that throughout the room (and well beyond the 4 walls themselves) were a wide range of folks who were "deconstructing" the presentation in real time via Skype | Twitter | you name it.

How to Present While People are Twittering

How to Present While People are Twittering
People used to whisper to each other or pass hand-scribbled notes during presentations.
Now these notes are going digital on Twitter or via conference-provided chat rooms.
Up until now, this back-channel has been mainly confined to the Internet industry and technology conferences. However, a survey of leadership conferences from Weber Shandwick shows that there is a significant increase in blogging and twittering at conferences.

Backchannel Tips
http://www.shambles.net/pages/staff/BCtips/
In Wikipedia "Backchannel" is defined as ...
... the practice of using networked computers to maintain a real-time online conversation alongside live spoken remarks. The term was coined in the field of Linguistics to describe listeners' behaviours during verbal communication, Victor Yngve 1970.
The term "backchannel" generally refers to online conversation about the topic or the speaker. Occasionally backchannel provides audience members a chance to fact-check the presentation.
This area of Shambles lists some of the tools that can be used to Backchannel in a meeting, conference, talk .. or your classroom.
