     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.

Ustream.tv - offers live video and chat rooms that can be used for anyone on the application. There are only six different channels that available. Ustream.tv is only available in English, as well. 

These four applications are similar and function the same way. Justin.tv offers the most options and is appealing to many different individuals. Also, Justin.tv, Stickam.com, and Blog.tv offer a profile page where Ustream.tv does not. If you do not like one application you can use one of these similar applications.

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

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.
