Seedlings have the best job in the world. We get to collaborate with some of the finest digital thinkers in the world. This week we were able to invite Michael Wesch into our world for an interview. Did you know Michael Wesch has only been a professor for 5 years? Listen in as we ask how he manages to engage and teach 400 students at once. The interview is great, the chat room was rocking so much it is going to take me a couple of reads to get all the great links and reflective conversations that were going on.
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.
Alice, Bob and Cheryl are joined by Susan Phillips, lead adventurer from Chets Creek Elementary School from Jacksonville with her technology integration teacher, Melanie Holtsman. It is our first on the road show, where Susan is traveling and coming to us via cell phone. They have great service in Georgia because we only lost her one time! This show is about how a principal as the instructional/technology leader in the building, can take the whole school community on an educational journey and have her school with 96% of the students who are performing at and above standard.
Alice , Bob and Cheryl chat the show away with the great chat room in the background keeping things going. Ben, from Yarmouth HS, joined in the conversation.
