Paul Allison and Chris Sloan host:

  • Jo Paraiso, teacher at Fremont High School, Oakland and Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age member
  • Timothy Burke, School Partnerships at Gooru
  • Leah Jensen, Instructional Tech Lead at Oakland Unified School District
  • Andrew Wyndham, School Partnerships at Gooru

We brainstorm several use-case possibilities such as:

  • What if students used Gooru to keep a portfolio of the articles they've read, podcasts they've listened to, videos they've viewed?
  • How could teachers and students build collections together, using the copy tools in Gooru?
  • How can we use resource narrations and the new Classpages to guide and inspire students as they are using different collections?

We hope you enjoy this conversation between teachers re-imagining online education using Gooru, and if you missed the first TTT webcast with Gooru you can listen to the recording here: http://edtechtalk.com/node/5165

Enjoy!

On this episode, we share/converse/think aloud about the IDEC conference coming up on August 4-8 at Colorado University, Boulder.

IDEC, now in its 21st year, is hosted by teams of educators from different countries and continents. This is the first time in ten years that it has been held in the U.S. Democratic education is not a type of school or research-based practice.

It isn’t one kind of learning program or philosophy. It is a frame. There are thousands of people and organizations around the globe engaged in democratic education. IDEC 2013 is for all of them.
