Bring On Da Noise: The Backchannel Panel

Michael Feldstein, Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment, Aug 13, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As you know, I have been experimenting with backchannel software in my presentations and panels, including one recent panel that included Michael Feldstein. Of the experience he writes, "I would first want to try having a little more preparatory dialog with them about the most productive ways to use the backchannel." Yes, it's novel now, and people will play. That was expected and - indeed -appreciated. My own take is that as the technology becomes more mainstream, people will be able to learn to use it on their own. They don't need me at the front of the room telling them how to dialogue. We always seem to have this urge to tell people how they should manage themselves. It's an urge we should resist, really.
