Join Alice and Cheryl as we interview Kern Kelley, Sarah Sutter, all from Maine in our Google Fest Show. Bob is out at his daughters show for the evening. Part way through the show we brought in Melanie Holtsman, from Jacksonville, FL, who was on the show last week. We met Melanie at the NYC GTA 08 meet up.
The chat will be added tomorrow and it is full of amazing links.
As you will hear, the interest generated by a Google discussion is huge. We had fun, we hope you do too.
This week Women of the Web 2 welcomed guest Jeremy Davis, "20 To Watch" 2008 award winner, finalist for the Project Tomorrow Innovation in Education Award as High Impact Teacher for Orange County in 2008, and creator of Virtual Technology Teacher http://virtualtechnologyteacher.com. Jeremy is currently a Coordinator for Instructional Technology for the Anaheim City School District in Orange County, California. In spite of some Skype challenges and audio difficulties at the beginning of the show, Jeremy and Jen persevered with some awesome conversation about Jeremy's exciting activities with teachers and students. Jeremy shared strategies for engaging administrators and teachers with technology, creative teacher-led professional development suggestions, and ideas for making effective use of COWs (computers on wheels). His online videos of model technology lessons are fantastic resources for teachers and students of all ages. WOW2 links on Delicious: http://delicious.com/WOW2.0
