1 - Arrange to have a conversation about peace, cooperation, self respect/esteem, conflict resolution etc. with your participants (or reflect on these issues yourself). Use digital tools or paper and crayons/paints to make art that communicates suggestions for making this a happier, healthier and safer more peaceful world. Scan your art and build a KidCast For Peace website, get ready to hold the art up in front of the CU-SeeMe Camera (Connectix recommended). Our global audio and video interaction using CU-SeeMe software (downloadable free-see technical section) is tentatively schedualed for 24 hours beginning 0 GMT. We will begin testing several days before the KidCast. We will link to your web site (if you send us the URL IN ADVANCE). Please encourage your young and older "artists" to be interviewed by a live and cyberspace audience. A V.A.R.I.O.U.S. representative will moderate from "KidCast Central."
2 - Scan the pictures created (in #1) at your location and build a web site. If you are unable to pre-produce a KC site, or need help, email us with your need?
3 - Testing and set up will take place the week before our multicast. Check out our CU-SeeMe page for details. Let us know as much in advance as possible, what time frame(s)--any 1-2 hour slot-- you are able to participate with us? Be sure to make SCREEN GRABS of your CU-SeeMe sessions and use them along with the scans from STEP TWO in building a web site called YOUR NAME - KidCast For Peace, that uses a KidCast logo and is linked back to KidCast Central.
We seek expression that speaks of how to make this a happier, healthier, safer and more peaceful world? Build your personal or group "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For A Better World" web site incorporating various media. Send us the URL of your site, VRML world, or anything else you come up with to demonstrate your Visions Of Peace.
