Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) Newsletter! This week was Earthweek which included an Earthcast on EarthDay to celebrate. This annual event is a twenty-four hour webcast that originated in 2008 and now includes people from around the globe who come together in the Earthbridges community to produce this annual webcastathon. The highlights for me included hearing student perspectives from The Petroleum Institute Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and kindergarten students from Fremont, New Hampshire, United States.

Week of April 3 - 10, 2010

Welcome to this week's EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! There was some difficulty with the dissemination of last week's newsletter so last week's webcasts will be combined with this week's information. Throughout the past week, there were fantastic sessions offered at ETT. Plans for Earthhcast 2010 took place with Matt Montagne and the many organizers for the upcoming 24-hour webcast on April 22nd.
