 Week of Dec. 18- January 8, 2010


Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! 

 

Welcome to 2010!  Hopefully you had a great New Year's Day and are ready to head into a whole new year.  New Years are for new beginnings.  This is true for EdTechTalk too.  There are some new shows to check out, new people coming into the chat rooms, and new ways to communicate in a show. Susan van Gelder is running a K12 Online Echo each week on Tuesdays at 8 PM Eastern.  Be sure to join her for some great conversations surrounding this amazing conference.  Instructional Design Live hit the airways this week.  You can catch it each week on Fridays at 12 PM Eastern. Women of the Web 3.0 has moved to Sundays at 8:30 PM Eastern.  It's still a fabulous hour of education and entertainment.  And be sure to take advantage of leaving a voice comment for your favorite show.  You can find the link on the live page.

     What started as the usual news and edtech resources winds into a "what do we want to do in the show" discussion. We just want to say to those who hand on to the end, "We're sorry!"

    In this Teachers Teaching Teachers podcast, we will welcome five students from the East-West School of International Studies and two radio producers, Sanda Htyte and Ann Heppermann. We wanted to learn more about the kinds of passionate, intelligent, well-researched radio programs that we hear on WNYC’s Radio Rookies.

    This fall six of Paul Allison’s students at the East-West School of International Studies worked with Sanda Htyte and Ann Heppermann to produce radio programs (with images) for the Mapping Main Street project. This was the “Short Wave” program with WNYC’s Radio Rookies. All of these students (and one more from East-West) are now working on individual programs with Radio Rookies.

    In this podcast, you'll learn more about creating projects for students that are personally meaningful and of interest to others. Learn how public radio producers help young people create high-quality audio documentaries. Enjoy this podcast about Radio Rookies and Mapping Main Street.

    Seedlings is back! Happy New Year 2010! Seedlings returned for the season with Deb White, ACTEM Technology Educator of the Year, 2009. Deb talked about her experiences as a second grade teacher in Orono, Maine. Deb is a life long learner and demonstrates her love and curiosity of learning throughout her classroom and the connections she makes around the world using Twitter with seven and eight year olds. If you are interested in learning how she manages this in her classroom give a listen. Deb also has an incredible way of embedding netiquette skills throughout her curriculum.

    For our first show of 2010, we discussed the topic "What is your innovation in education, and why does it matter?"  This conversation was started by Ben Wilkoff, so naturally we invited him to join us on the show.  Ginger Lewman also came into the skype call and the chat room was hopping.  Enjoy!

    On this podcast we continue our inquiry into I-Search, research, and social bookmarking tools.

    Terry Elliot and Wendy Drexler joined us us to discuss Zotero.

    Keith Borne and Peter Sabbagh, from MemCatch also joined us in on our discussion about emerging technologies in the social knowledge area.

    We were also joined by Fred Haas, an English teacher and Tech Liaison for the Boston Writing Project. If you listen closely to what Fred has to say, you'll find out what the title of this podcast is referring to.

    Perhaps you use tools such as MemCatch, Zotero, Diigo and delicious. Perhaps you have also begun to use these tools with your students. If so, we think you'll enjoy this conversation about how we do research now.

        This week, we focused on the haves and have-nots of education and technology.  We discussed those who have technology vs. those who have very limited technology, as well as those that have supportive administration vs. those without.
