5 Steps for Participating in a QuestChat
Chatting with Mars Team Experts
During the course of the Mars Team Online project, various NASA experts
will be available for live interactions with students. To participate,
you need only have access to a modern Web (Internet) browser. Participation
may be active (see registration instructions below) or passive (a link
to an observation room will be provided). We request that you become acquainted
with the featured expert by reading his/her autobiography and field journals,
prior to participation in a QuestChat.
Chatting with Colleauges, MTO Staff, and
Weekly sessions are held to connect adults using the project with one
another and with Mars Team Online staff. These regularly scheduled chats
are intended primarily for teachers (including homeschool teachers) who
are using Mars Team Online and other Sharing NASA Quest projects
in their classrooms. The objective is to allow collaboration with peers
to best determine how this project can help in learning. These chat sessions
can also help with familiarization with the system before a scheduled
chat with a Mars Team expert. Currently, these chats are held every Thursday.
These events happen using QuestChat software (no download is
necessary), a technology that allows you and others to type and read brief
thoughts. To read dialogue from previous Mars Team Online chats, visit
our chat archives.
Contact Oran Cox if you
have any questions or problems with the registration procedures. We hope
you can join us!
