We talked about various projects we are doing with our students. Some are in classes during the school day, and some are outside of school hours. We're building connections with our peers, both far away and in our schools and districts. We're filling in our network, and making some rich and surprising connections Link to text chat
Join Alice, Bob and I as we speak to two different guests. We speak to Doug Taylor from Podcast People one of our favorite podcasting sites. Then we move to Arcademicskillbuilders with Dave Scherrer. We were surprised and joined by many preservice teachers in the chat room. After we spent time helping them to find the audio things quieted down, until Skype stopped and Cheryl was left talking on the stream. You just never know! Enjoy the show.
Host Doug Symington was joined by Jeff Lebow and Matt Montagne to talk about the upcoming Webcast Academy "Solstice" broadcast, which is tentatively slated for Saturday, June 20th, 2009 at a to-be-determined time. This webcast will be a good opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning more about what is involved with participating in the Webcast Academy experience. We also spent a little time on this brainstorm talking about Google Wave and Google Apps for EDU. Thanks to everyone who participated live in the chat room.
This week's conversation was started by a May 27 blog post by Lisa Thumann titled Coping with Distractions . As always, Lisa, Sheila and Maria found plenty to talk about with a bit of giggling as well. The chat room was busy too.
