Teachers Teaching Teachers #101 - Collaborating in the Bering Sea - 04.23.08


57:00 minutes (13.02 MB)

On this podcast Susan Ettenheim and Paul Allison are joined by John Concilus, Director of Educational Technology, and a student from one of the schools in the Bering Strait School District. John introduced himself a few weeks ago by responding to an earlier podcast with a "Comment and Invitation for Collaboration."

Learn more about the Bering Strait School District and their work with technology. Then this Wednesday, April 30, join John Concilus again, plus a teacher from Brevig Mission, AK, Ginger Crockett, and others. Woody Woodgate and a colleague may be joining us as well. (Maybe we'll finally find out more about that seal hunt.)

We are excited to continue our connections with teachers in Alaska, and in particular we want to learn more about "place-based education." Here's what John said in a recent email:

We've already decided at the budget meeting to move forward with our Digital Foxfire program next school year. I'll have more information about this by Wednesday, but will have a form set up by then for having potentially intersted partner schools sign up.
Where's Brevig Mission? Check out this map, and use the zoom to find where you are in relation to Ginger's school.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #99 - From elgg to Drupal? - 04.09.08


69:20 minutes (15.88 MB)

For this webcast, we invited Bill Fitzgerald, Dave Cormier and Gail Desler to talk about social networking and what platforms make sense right now. Of course behind all of this talk about Drupal and Edublogs were questions that we are asking about about how we in the, ah... Teachers Teaching Teachers, Youth Voices, Personal Learning Space, Youth Twitter ... group of teachers might want to continue working together ... and how the software decisions we need to make this Spring can support our hopes and plans.
