Weeks of August 7, 2010 – August 20, 2010

Welcome to the EdTechTalk newsletter for August 7, 2010 through August 20, 2010. North America is getting ready to return to school during the next couple weeks. We expect several shows to return to a regular broadcast schedule at that time. During the last couple of weeks while many of us were intense upon enjoying the last of our summer’s, the following shows were on the air.


Week of May 15-21, 2010

Welcome to this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk newsletter. EdTechTalk is a vibrant community with 12 shows that include audio and live participation in the chat room. ETT is part of  Worldbridges, which includes the Spanish speaking Puentes Al Mundo, Webcast Academy, WebheadsinAction, Earthbridges, and Koreabridge.
I discovered a new show on Koreabridge named, Women in Korea. To my delight, they are scheduled to have their next show Sunday. Puentas Al Mundo is very active too, although I must claim ignorance as I don’t read Spanish.

Week of April 17 – 23, 2010

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 March 20 -26, 2010

Welcome to this week’s EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! The ETT community continued to produce top rate shows this week. Among the notable was Instructional Design Live on Friday. Maggi Savin Baden from the United Kingdom discussed problem based learning. Last Saturday also saw Carly Shuler talk about innovations in mobile learning with primaries. The K12Online Echo featured Beth Ritter-Guth, who is currently working on geocaching. Kevin Honeycutt also had an event in the virtual world of Second Life.

Week of February 20 – 26, 2010

Welcome to this week’s EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! While most of us were tuning into the Olympics and cheering on athlete’s from our respective countries, many were also busy producing and participating in webcasts at EdTechTalk, Puentesalmundo, and Koreabridge. During this week, K12Online also webcast a show with Kelly Hines, who presented at the k12Online in 2009. This show will be posted soon, be on the lookout for it!

Week of January 23-29, 2010

Welcome to this week’s EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter. The big news this week is the conference taking place in Philadelphia at the Science Leadership Academy. Educon2.2 is in its third year, and is billed as both a conference and a conversation. Five hundred educators from around the nation (and a smattering from abroad) are participating in this conference. Although this conference is billed as "not a technology conference", technology is everywhere.

Week of November 14-November 20, 2009

Welcome to this week’s EdTechTalk (ETT) newsletter! This week we enjoyed the third LAN party of the k12Online2009 Conference. Kevin Jarrett & Sylvia Martinez talked about their K-20 Educators Exploring Virtual Worlds  after we viewed the presentation at edtechtalk. They interacted with people in the chatroom while giving us an update on their projects since the 2007 conference.

Week of October 17-23, 2009

Welcome to the ETT newsletter! Although aired earlier, this week marks the week the most current Women Of the Web show was posted. Before the show was named WOW2.0. It has morphed into WOW3.0 with three multi-talented women: Sharon Peters, Cheri Toledo, and Peggy George! During this airing they shared their visions for the future of this famous show. Also this week was a presentation by Chris Dede on New Strategies for Educational Assessment over at the Discovery Education Network. Dr. Dede is a professor at Harvard University who speaks on the intersection of technologies and learning.
