Teachers Teaching Teachers #178 - MemCatch and Zotero: Tools to Cure Our Cartesian Hangover - 12.09.09


45:53 minutes (10.5 MB)

On this podcast we continue our inquiry into I-Search, research, and social bookmarking tools.

Terry Elliot and Wendy Drexler joined us us to discuss Zotero.

 

Keith Borne and Peter Sabbagh, from MemCatch also joined us in on our discussion about emerging technologies in the social knowledge area.

We were also joined by Fred Haas, an English teacher and Tech Liaison for the Boston Writing Project. If you listen closely to what Fred has to say, you'll find out what the title of this podcast is referring to.

Perhaps you use tools such as MemCatch, Zotero, Diigo and delicious. Perhaps you have also begun to use these tools with your students. If so, we think you'll enjoy this conversation about how we do research now.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #173 - EBSCO, BrainyFlix, Online Research, and More! - 10.21.09


63:41 minutes (14.58 MB)

Ron Burns from EBSCO joined us on this podcast as we continued the conversation about using databases for research, how to share research using Diigo and how to incorporate the EBSCO resources into these goals! Being big EBSCO fans, we always welcome any chance to learn more about upcoming changes and how to better use EBSCO.

We are happy that Joyce Valenza joined us in the chat room, since she started us on this question of how to use a social bookmarking site like Diigo with a library database like EBSCO. (Find out what she found noisome!)

Also joining us on this podcast was Jack Yu who creates his own brand of meaningful fun at BrainyFlix.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #169 - More about diigo, annotations and on-line, ongoing research - 9.23.09


67:46 minutes (15.51 MB)

Chief Diigo Ambassador, Maggie Tsai joined us on this Wednesday evening, late in September. About a month before, we had a lively conversation about research and diigo: Teachers Teaching Teachers #165 - 08.26.09 - Meet Lisa Dick and George Haines: Talking about research and diigo.

We wanted to talk to Maggie because some of the teachers who use Youth Voices had begun to use Diigo, and we wanted to get together on this webcast to talk about how it is going, and what our plans with students are with this bookmarking site. Please enjoy, and add a comment about how you build your students’ research muscles, and how you use diigo. And tune in to future episodes of Teachers Teaching Teachers. This thread of I-Search, on-going research, Diigo, social bookmarking, and use of library databases promises to be a rich vein of inquiry for us this year.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #165 - 08.26.09 - Meet Lisa Dick and George Haines: Talking about research and diigo


66:12 minutes (20.65 MB)

On this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers, we had a conversation about Diigo and annotations with Lisa Dick, Computer Education a teacher Northern Louisiana @tidertechie. I had put out a call for teachers who use Diigo with their students, and Lisa answered that call.

We also talked with George Haines @oline73. George teaches 7th Graders out on Long Island. One of his sites, by the way is a Google Site, so there’s more to talk about there, since I’ve been building a prototype of what I want students to do. Anyway… George and I connected on Twitter because I was wondering about how to keep my up-coming curriculum focused on self-initiated, self-interested, self-sustaining inquiries.

At Youth Voices, we do a lot of work around this question. We’ve borrowed James A. Beane’s beginning point in his Curriculum Integration work. It’s from Beane that we got the idea to have students write “10 self and 10 world questions“  There’s been a lot of — “Well, maybe we need to do this or that instead.” — And I’m open to some of this, but I still find this simple beginning place to be incredibly powerful.

Getting back to George Haines, he had some ideas that he said were too long to put into 140 characters, ideas about how to kick off self-directed projects. So we invited him onto TTT.

In short, we talked about research, annotating resources, sharing them in diigo, and we talked about why we do this self-motivated, “I-search” in the first place… and we’ll be meeting two new teachers. That’s the most wonderful part of this story. I had never met Lisa Dick or George Hines or the others that joined us on this webcast. We hope you enjoy meeting them too.
