EdTechTalk#48 - 1 year anniversary and Back to Basics show
June 4, 2006
Our 1 year anniversary show. For the first 20 minutes we do a review of the year that was in the industry and in our show. And then the last half an hour was spent doing another back to basics episode. Wanna start using edtech? It's all here... well... alot of it.
A special episode dealing with the o'reilly web 2.0 conference debate. We were fortunate to have been joined by Doug Symington, Tom Raftery (THE IT@CORK GUY) and Harold Jarche who all gave their 2 cents on the issue. I must say, holding down the fort without Jeff is not nearly as fun as having him around. This is an important issue I think... and one we'll probably see again. Several representatives of O'reilly.net were contacted and offered a spot on the show. John Battell replied, but said family committments would not allow him to join us. (I'd like to apologize to Tom for getting his name wrong 18 times during the show... hee hee. oops.)
Podcast Academy Coverage - Part 3
Part 3 of our coverage of The 2nd Podcast Academy held at Boston University April 28-29, 2006. While Doug anchors the stream, Jeff calls in with discussions from the Academy. We start out halfway through a covnersation with John Furrier of Podtech.com. We then speak with Ed Blaguszewski of Umass, Kieth Grove of Dover Sherburne Middle School, David Malan of the Harvard Extension School, Sam Levin of Podshow, and Academy organizer, Sasha Norkin of Boston University, We wrap up with the streamed audio of our first attempt at Triplecasting, a discussion with Videoblogging pioneer, SteveGarfield.
On today's show we talked about the possibilities of starting a wikitextbook project with from a cultural angle. To get us started, we be talked to Mark Hemphill from the University of Prince Edward Island and then we moved on to some community conversation on the various possibilities.
