Weeks of July 10 – July 23, 2010

This week’s newsletter, as did the last, features the recent Teachers Teaching Teachers shows where some very interesting conversations are taking place on a series of webcasts related to the Gulf oil disaster with the show hosts.

The Instructional Designers are also staying busy during this summer period with their three shows being recorded and posted.

Week of February 27 – March 5, 2010

Welcome to this week’s EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! One of our goals in providing this newsletter each week is to make it convenient for our readers to quickly review the excellent ETT webcasts that have been posted in the previous week (in case you missed the live session). We just provide the links and highlights in the newsletter, but if you go to the actual link you not only will be able to listen to the recording, but you can read the chat log and additional information provided by the show hosts.
