I.1 History and Development of Justin.tv

     Founders of Justin.tv

 

 

Justin Kan was the creator and first broadcaster on Justin.tv. He now is in charge of product ideas, technical hiring, and writes user features. 3


 Michale is the CEO of Justin.tv and helped Justin Kan create Justin.tv. 3

      Early Days of Justin.tv

According to mahalo.com, "Justin TV first began as an extremely small network with just one person broadcasting, which was Justin Kan. Kan wore a web cam 24/7 and streamed all of his content starting March 19, 2007. His website quickly grew media attention, which lead to the expansion of his website and also led to the addition of other people doing this same activity" (mahalo, 2007).

II.1 Unique Applications of Justin.tv

There are several applications for Justin.tv.  In many ways Justin.tv is similar to youtube.com, but unique when it comes to education.  Justin.tv can be very helpful in the classroom and insightful for students.  For example, a teacher can access another teacher and classroom from anywhere else in the world, if the time was set up previously.  This gives students an opportunity to interact with each other and ask questions, because Justin.tv is based on live broadcasting.  Live broadcasting is the primary characteristic that makes it stand out compared to youtube.com.

Another unique application that separates Justin.tv from any other web 2.0 application like it, is that anyone that has created a profile on Justin.tv can broadcast themselves live, via web cam, 24/7.  This can be done on a PC, laptop, or a mobile device like what Justin Kan used to start this whole concept of life casting on Justin.tv.  Being able to broadcast anything live and from a mobile site anywhere you want to go, is what separates Justin.tv from any other website like it.

II.2 Comparison of Justin.tv with other similar Web 2.0 Applications


To the right is a picture of attributes found in different Web 2.0 technologies.  Justin.tv has many of the included descriptions of a Web 2.0 technology.  There are also other Web 2.0 sites that contain some of the main components of Justin.tv, below there has been a table created to help in comparing between these different type of live streaming Web 2.0 technologies.4

Justin.tv – has live videos that can be watched. Also, there is a chat room that people can discuss what they think about Justin.tv. This Web 2.0 application has fifteen different channels that can be used. Along with everything else, Justin.tv comes in various different languages

Stickam.com -Is only available in English, and offers nine different channels. Stickam.com has live video and chat rooms available for anytime use.

Blog.tv --Has nine channels available for users to work on, and is only offered in English. Blog.tv also has a chat room and live videos that can be used.

IV.Educational Applications of Justin.tv

There are many different educational applications that involve Justin.tv, and provided below, there are quite a few lesson plan examples that can be used for all ages.

A useful educational application for Justin.tv is if a teacher would like to introduce their students to other students from a different country, the teacher can observe the foreign classroom through live broadcasting provided by Justin.tv.  Through this, the students will see what a classroom setting looks like in another country/culture.  The same thing can be applied if a teacher wishes to have their students learn a lesson from a teacher that lives in a different country, this can also be done through Justin.tv. 

The live steaming video on Justin.tv gives many different options and opportunities to use this technology in creating lesson plans and activities with students across the world without leaving your classroom. By doing this, schools could take a field-trip without spending the money, saving time, and still keeping up with the curriculum.  

The options and opportunities are endless when it comes to integrating Justin.tv with a classroom curriculum.  The only thing to be concerned about is that Justin.tv does not screen what is being shown on all the different channels. Because it is live streaming video the people running Justin.tv cannot watch every single channel broadcasting so there are many channels that may not be appropriate for children of a younger age.  So as adults be cautionary of which channel your students or children may be watching.back to top




III.Educational Lesson Plans That Use Justin.tv

Below there are many different types of lesson plans that include Justin.tv in them.  There is everything from elementary geography, middle school math, high school physical education, and even post secondary science.  Above each lesson plan there is a link to download the detailed lesson plan in either a 2003 Word document, or Pdf file.  Some lesson plans even have a Powerpoint that accompanies the lesson plan that can also be downloaded.  Many of the lesson plans include uses that are not yet available on Justin.tv, but can become future uses of Justin.tv if I teacher would like to use the website.

V.Tragedy on Justin.tv

In November 2007, tragedy brought Justin.tv into the spotlight when a 19 year old community college student named Abraham Briggs recorded his suicide live on Justin.tv. Briggs, whom operated under the tag CandyJunkie, had a long history of mental illness and ended his own life by swallowing a large dose of anti-depressants. What is especially disturbing about his death is the fact that the 185 member live audience watching his suicide persistently egged him on in his suicide endeavor. Not only this, not a single person whom witnessed Briggs's demise reported his death to the police, even after literally watching him kill himself in real time. Perhaps, this is alternate example of the character of the internet. While much has been elaborated on of the  "conversation," "community," and "interconnectedness" of the web, this case illustrates the web as it can really be, a soulless, empty, and often heartless reality.

VI.Justin.tv International Applications

No matter where your location is, the applications of justin.tv are all the same.  Justin.tv can be used internationally through live feed from isolated locations such as schools trying to study a specific rural area; justin.tv can benefit learning by bringing the subject closer to the classroom and students. Or it could be used between different countries where the content being studied may be more relevant, such as an Australian class may be studying a subject about earthquakes in California where an American class would be able to recite the procedures undergone when earthquakes strike and also some devastating effects from earthquakes of the past. No matter where you live, justin.tv is a highly useful web 2.0 Application tool in the classroom and can benefit learning results. However, in Australian government schools the use of justin.tv is very limited due to such web devices being blocked.

  1. Hi everyone my name is Amanda Holt, and I am the PM for our group during Project II.  I would just like to take some time to introduce myself, and discuss some of the things that I have put on here.  I am a Junior majoring in Chemistry with a teaching certification.  I was in mechanical engineering, but found out that I just did not enjoy it so now I'm doing teaching.  The main thing that everyone should know about me is that I'm a huge Foo Fighters fan so if I start talking about them and continue to go on and on and on just tell me to stop. 

    I have alot of goals and ideas for this project and I hope all of you do as well.  Right now I have added a page where everyone can add their input on research for our web 2.0 application.  Yesterday I sent out an email to all the Purdue students telling them their roles, and I hope to before the end of this week send an email to our International students outlining roles for them as well. 

    So before the end of the week everyone needs to have at least 3 posts up that deal with research and how other sources/web sites use our web 2.0 application.

    If there are any problems or questions please let me know, I am here to help and do whatever I can so we can get that superior rating!!

  2. Hi I'm Chelsea, I'm a freshman and my major is Elementary Education.  I like being around children and helping others.  I enjoy being outside in the sun and laying out.  Since this is my first year, I have had many new experiences and this project is another! I haver never heard of justin t.v so we will see how this goes!

  3. My name is Ashleigh Tippmann. I am currently a sophomore in Elementary Education. I love being around children, and learning new things! I think we can do a great job on this project! Good Luck everyone!

    1. Hi Lauren! I have sent you, Tamara, and Caitlin an email so we can figure out the best time to get together so we can discuss this project and hopefully help with any questions that you guys might have.  I was thinking that maybe we could meet over skype or Adobe Connect April 1st around 10:00 a.m. your time, which is March 31st 7:30 p.m. our time.  Just either email me back or comment on this wiki page so we can get started on getting you guys involved.  Thanks!

  5. Hey Everyone,

    My name is Cathy Cohoat and I am a freshman at Purdue currently in Mathematics education, but currently switching my major to elementary education as well.  Haha.  I have always wanted to be a teacher, so as long as I am around kids I am happy.  Little kids are some of my favorite so I look forward to being able to teach them. 

    I hope this project turns out to be a winner, because I do NOT want to take this final.  So I will see everyone in class on Friday!

    -Cathy Cohoat

  9. Just to clarify things. For us at USQ in Australia. When would you like all the information posted up on this site? For us this assignment isnt due for a couple of weeks?

    Would you just like me to answer the following questions?????

    - What is the purpose of the technology?

    -What are some examples of the technology being used?

    -How could it be used in various classroom settings?

    -How is it used in other countries like Australia???

    -What are some lesson plans that would illustrate its use in the classroom?

    Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, im just confused about this assignment and i just figured its better to ask.

    It would be great to hear back from you guys

    Cheers

    1. Hi Lauren,

      I'm sorry for all of the confusion.  This Sunday our class has a Rough draft due of our website.  So yes it would be great if you helped us answer a few questions.  Here are the ones that I would like you to help answer, How can Justin.tv be used international, you can be specific and use Australia as an example.Chelsea and Tracy who are also in this group are working on the international implications of Justin.tv, so you can work with them on what to put if you would like.  Also if you go to the Justin.tv lesson plans page and sign up for 3 different lesson plans, that you could develope that would be great as well.  I will send you an example of what all the lessons plans will be desgined content wise.  If you could make up at least one lesson plan before Sunday our time and post it on the main page of this wiki that would be great.  Also post what you have found in using Justin.tv internationally on the main page as well.  Thanks for your help and cooperation, and if you have any more questions or problems please let me know.

  10. Hi Lauren,

    We are supposed to work together and figure out ways Justin.tv can be used internationally.  Any ideas? Let me know (smile)

    1. Hey Chelsea

      Just got home today, where in our holidays and im exhausted from travelling but i will try my best to have a few ideas posted by tomorrow morning, my time for you guys!

      See what i can find out

  11. I never introduced myself so I thought that I better do so.

    My name is Tracy Smith.  I am a single mother of two boys (7 & 8 years old).  I am a full time student studying Elementary Education.  I have an associates degree in design technology.  I have no free time.   I have a fiance who lives in Michigan.  Life is hectic.  I am not a partier nor do I ever get a chance to spend time with friends. 

    I have never heard of Justin.tv  and am stil completely lost in this project. 

  12. Hey guys,

    Would you like the Australian members in the group to be a part of the final presentation? If so, how can we be involved?

    If the other Australian members are up to it, we can do a prerecorded presentation to add to your showcase. Myself personally can't do anything live as i will be attending a coaching clinic during the time in which you will be making your presentation.

    I'm hoping i can establish contact with the other Australians as i havent heard from them throughout the duration of this assignment.

  13. G'Day Guys!

    Sorry its taken me so long to actually introduce myself on here, but here we go!

    My name is Caeshlyn  but I changed that to Caitlin for Uni (Its so much easier to pronounce!) But everyone calls me Caiti or Cricket!

    Im 19, Im a second year Education student at USQ. Im studing english and Law as my subjects but I have an interest in Special Education, and currently help coach the Queensland Athletes with Disabilities team. I also work as a Kindy teacher - on call. I have a degree in Music (Vocal) that I got when I was 17 and almost died getting!! hahaha. I enjoy music, spending time with friends, driving as well going to the beach.

    I live about 3 hours away from USQ, so its a bit of a drive to Uni! I also dont get much chance to use the net out here, its a bit of a silly place to live really. I only just moved out here, and I wanna move back to town!!!

    Ive also never heard about justin.tv but look forward to helping out!!

    Cheers!!

  14. Hi everyone!

    Just wondering where we are standing in regards to the presentation? What can we USQ people do? I was thinking that perhaps we could present the international aspects of justin.tv thru a justin.tv broardcast? As we are international.... but thats jsut an idea! I also have some more international uses for justin.tv - would you like me to email my ideas to anyone in particular? Or jsut add them up? Also, Ive finally got outta hospital and am able to give you my lesson plans. Again, did you want me to email them or just add them up? My only concern is mesing up the formatting of the other lesson plans if I do it, but Im more then willing to give it a shot! (smile)

    Hope you all had a fantastic Easter!

    1. Hi Caiti,

      Glad to hear you're out of the hospital.  If you could just email me your lesson plans that would be fantastic.  Also I sent out an email earlier asking if any of you guys in Austrailia would like to be a part of the presentation through Justin.tv, so if you would like to that would be amazing.  My group and I are having a meeting tonight 7 p.m. our time and it usually lasts till 8 or 8:30 p.m. our time.  So if you are online during that time just send us a message and we can figure something out.  We already have a Justin.tv profile for our Purdue group here, so if you guys could put together one so we can use it at the presentation that would be great!! 

      If you have any ideas for the international uses of Justin.tv you can just post them on the wiki or put them on a comment and we will put them up, or you could email me them. Whatever works best for you.  If you could get your lesson plans and the international stuff as soon as you can that would be great.  We're suppose to have everything done before this weekend. 

      Thanks so much for your help it is really appreciated! (big grin)   Hope you had a great easter too.

      1. Hi Amanda,

        Crashing cars isnt fun! I wont do it again in a hurry!!! But everyone has been fantastic!! (smile)

        Ill email you my lesson plans ASAP. (smile) I also didnt get an email re: the presentation. Ive checked my email a few times and it isnt there, nor is it in my junk mail inbox, could you resend it by any chance?

        In regards to the international aspects, There are many rural students in Australia, learning via Distance Education. Justin,tv gives these students a fantastic way to not further their education by exploring subjects further and broardening their academic horizons, but also allows the students to communicate with each other. Usually their classes are taken either on the phone, over over the internet, however at particular times, eg harvest etc, it can be difficult for students to "get to class" so to speak. This is when a medium such as justin.tv can come in handy as their peers/teachers or themselves can record their class, or maybe even use it as an assessment medium! - eg Research "how plants grow" and make a justin.tv presentation about it. (dodgy example I know!)

        Does that make sence? I have referencing in regard to distance ed, but the justin.tv stuff is more my ideas, just from my own personal educational experience. So it may be useless. But it was jsut an idea!

        Ive really enjoyed working with you all, and Im sure that the end product is going to be fantastic!!
