EdTechTalk #38 - News and a Review of the Barnraising
March 26, 2006
The first 20 minutes we covered some news issues from the last couple of weeks, including gada.be, Alice and a way to get around Windows passwords. We then moved into a discussion of the edtech wiki, how the barnraising is going, and some ideas about how to improve it. Jump into it, and help us build the new media curriculum.
A Discussion with Jeff Flynn, Jeff Lebow, Art Gelwicks, Alex Rigone, Cheryl Oaks, and Paul Ellerman. Topics covered include our latest preferences in RSS readers, edtech issues in private vs. public schools, laptop bans in the classroom, student blogging, cyberbullying, concept mapping with smarttech and freemind, conferencecasting, and more.
