Chill, Here's my Post #edtech

Mystery Science Theater 3000 meet the internet.  Well, not quite.  But Chill is a similar concept.  It is thinking Thursday and I haven't had a ton of time to explore Chill but I think it has real potential. Basically you can create viewing rooms based on a theme and then become a video jockey and watch videos from "YouTube, Ustream, Vimeo and more"  Then there is the social networking aspect.  Build yourself an X-Box type avatar and participate in conversations with others who are watching the same series of videos.  I can see this working nicely in the "flipped classroom" model.  What a great way for a similar audience to be engaged!
