66:02 minutes (45.34 MB)

 

As we enter the last couple of weeks of the first annual Connected Educator Month connectededucators.org, on this episode of TTT teachersteachingteachers.org/feed/podcast we celebrate another connected educator, Kevin Hodgson dogtrax.edublogs.org and his work with 6th graders epencil.edublogs.org at the William E. Norris Elementary School wmnorris.com in Southampton, MA.

Kevin is also the technology liaison with the Western Massachusetts Writing Project umass.edu/wmwp and a co-editor of the book collection Teaching the New Writing: Technology, Change and Assessment in the 21st Century Classroom store.tcpress.com/ 0807749648.shtml that examines the role of technology in the writing classroom in the age of standardized testing and assessment. Kevin says that he "also dabbles in the world of classroom-based humor" through his Boolean Squared webcomic www.booleansquared.com. In addition to all of these links, go to Digital Is digitalis.nwp.org/users/dogtrax to find a lot examples of his students' work and to see how and why Kevin does what he does in his classroom.

TTT#309 Badges:Peril/Possibility P. Rawsthorne, A. Zellner, V. Gennarelli, E. Eidman-Aadahl, S. Grant, S. Lee, D. Cormier 8.8.12


61:34 minutes (42.27 MB)

Our goal in this--and the next--episode of TTT teachersteachingteachers.org/feed/podcast is to join those who are developing a practical, pedagogical discourse between the heckling and the hype around badges. Our conversations are open and wide-ranging, but we have a few questions that must be answered soon, as the fall semester starts up around the US:

  • Does it make sense to wrap Youth Voices youthvoices.net with badges?
  • How would it work?
  • What impacts might there be on different kinds students?
  • How do I start?

Of course, it's impossible to pull apart the different philosophical, political, and psychological threads that seem to attach themselves to badges, but the educators in this conversation begin to bring some clarity to the questions involved.

In this episode,

There's only so much that this many thoughtful participants can say in an hour, but we hope that there are a few moments while you are listening when you find yourself wanting to enter the conversation. Let us know what you are thinking by posting a comment below. And join us next week as we continue our conversations about badges on TTT with these thoughtful educators:

We'll continue these conversations live at edtechtalk.com/ttt on Wednesday, 15 August at 4PM ET / 1PM PT/ World Times: goo.gl/tERfa. NOTICE THE EARLIER TIME.

We’ll continue to focus on incorporating badges into K-12 education and beyond. There’s so much to say on the topic.

What’s your favorite blog post, video, article, resource about Badges? Please add a couple of links in the comments below. We want to be open and flexile about all of the ways people are talking about the issues involved. And, we are interested in keeping it real. We’ve been developing some ideas around badges for Youth Voices youthvoices.net, and there's more about this on P2PU goo.gl/oKQ1R.

See you on Wednesday.

TTT#306 A talk about "A Place to Stand" on Jimmy Santiago Baca by Daniel Glick, also w/ Kym Sheehan & Denise VanBriggle 7.18.12


61:36 minutes (42.3 MB)

On this episode of TTT, meet teachers +Denise VanBriggle, +Kym Sheehan, and filmmaker +Daniel Glick who tell us more about a film project called "A Place to Stand,” which Daniel is making. The three of them are using Kickstarter: http://kck.st/NsBX8g to raise money to finish a feature-length documentary about the life and poetry of Jimmy Santiago Baca http://www.jimmysantiagobaca.com

On a recent post on the National Writing Project's Connect http://connect.nwp.org/national/blog/16429/join-us-support-place-stand-documentary Denise and Kym write:

A Place to Stand is a documentary film (http://kck.st/NsBX8g) about New Mexico poet Jimmy Santiago Baca and his transformation in the 1970s from an illiterate convict to a celebrated poet. Since his release, Jimmy has become one of the foremost Mexican American poets in America.

We're not viewing this as just a film. For us, this is about service. Jimmy’s memoir and poetry have inspired prisoners to leave gangs, drug addicts to stay clean, and countless others to dramatically shift the course of their lives. A Place to Stand will make his inspiring story and poetry available to many who would never find it otherwise. Free copies will be given to detention centers, prisons and schools for at-risk youth, coupled with programming designed to help people find in themselves what Jimmy found through his poetry: a place to stand in life, a sense of self-worth, and a reason to live.

Learn more about Jimmy Santiago Baca's life and poetry and consider contributing to the Kickstarter Project, A Place to Stand - Finishing Production. “This project will only be funded if at least $50,000 is pledged by Wednesday Aug 1, 12:00am EDT.” Join us in supporting this effort if you can.
