Eric Langhorst of the Speaking of History podcast joins us for a several minutes of discussing what he's doing in his 8th grade history class followed by an hour of fiery discussion on the importance of knowing exact historical dates. The real action begins about 30 minutes into the show.
Bud Hunt and Bob Sprankle dropped by this Sunday to talk to us about what's going on in their classes... which is alot. From 9 year old podcasters to high school blogging it was a round trip ticket to the best that's going on in K-12 edtech. Barbara Ganley dropped in near the end of the show and we jammed out some ideas for collaboration, for kids training adults and worked out a quick competition for an Edtechtalk coffee mug emailed to your computer.
