EdTechTalk Newsletter

Week of August 22-28, 2009

Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) Newsletter! School bells are ringing and there is renewed energy and excitement in the air as the new school year begins in many of our schools. While many of our EdTechTalk shows took a brief hiatus this summer so show hosts could get a much-needed, well-deserved break, the webcasts are beginning to return with that same renewed energy and excitement. Many of the latest webcasts are talking about great new plans and ideas being considered for classrooms/schools and professional development endeavors.

Week of August 8 - 14, 2009

Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) Newsletter! The webcasters, under the direction of Jeff Lebow, have been busy learning how to stream and record both ends of a Skype call. Webcast Academy interns will meet on Tuesday, August 18, at 9pm EST and Thursday, August 20, at 9pm EST to practice streaming and discuss interviewing techniques.

Newsletter for the Week of July 25 - July 31, 2009

Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) Newsletter! While it's been quiet here at EdTechTalk, the webcasters themselves have been quite busy.  Our very own Jeff Lebow

made a rare live appearance at EdubloggerCon East in Boston this week. Many webcasters got to meet with him live!  Also attending was Seedlings Bob Sprankle, Alice Barr, and Cheryl Oakes.  Conversations hosts Lisa Parisi, Maria Knee, and Sheila Adams were also in attendance. What a wonderful opportunity it was to connect.  The archive from the conference can be viewed here.
We also want to take this opportunity to congratulate Matt Montagne for becoming one of the newest educators to make it to the Google Teachers Academy.  Hooray for Matt!
Don't forget that Maria Knee and Jose Rodriguez need help putting together the K-12 Online Conference.  Let's start submitting proposals.  The deadline is August 16th.  Click here to submit your proposals.

And coming up this month, we get an opportunity to honor our very own Lee Baber.  Lisa Durff wrote a wonderful blog about her, with a link to the ETT Memorial Page.  Stay tuned for information on the Lee Baber Memorial Jamboree coming soon.
