Abstract: RoomCast is a web-based learning resource distribution tool designed to support whole-class collective inquiry in multi-activity instructional units designs enacted on heterogeneous collections of personal and public devices in classrooms. As a design tool, RoomCast supports accommodation to local curricular adaptations and technology platform availability, enabling the configuration of curated learning and teaching resource collections over a broad range of classroom contexts. In the classroom, RoomCast offers rapid redistribution of resources during teacher-initiated activity transitions, automatically distributing tailored sets of resources needed for the activity to heterogeneous client portals. While informed by research in technology supports for orchestration, RoomCast is not intended as a scripting tool for complex activity sequences. Rather, it is designed to support coarse-grained activity structures involving diverse types of stakeholders, placing responsibility for detailed activity management in the hands of teachers or custom scripts, in pursuit of a descriptive framework accessible to practitioners.
