    On Tuesday, April 14, our #EdShift chat will cover the rise of live-streaming video apps. Applications like Meerkat, Periscope and Tarsii give journalists the ability to feed live video to their audience. How does this change the landscape of content delivery and consumption?

    Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 12 p.m. Central Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss the technical, journalistic and ethical challenges journalists are now facing with this emerging technology, as well as how to incorporate these apps into curriculum at journalism schools and in training.

    The chat will be moderated by University of Georgia Senior Lecturer Mark Johnson, with special guests Judd Slivka of the Missouri School of Journalism, Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute, Neal Augenstein, digital reporter at WTOP and mobile communications consultant at iphonereporting.com, and Jeremy Littau of the Lehigh University Department of Journalism and Communication. A Storify of the chat will be added to this page after the chat.
