Week of February 14, 2009 to February 21, 2009

Welcome to this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk (ETT) Weekly Newsletter. As we move towards the end of February, we get to learn from the ED 21 Unconference in Cerritos, California.  It streamed live on Saturday, February 21st and can be heard at https://edtechtalk.net/ed21online.


EdTechTalk is a community of people interested in the use of technology to improve teaching and learning at all levels of education throughout the world. As a Worldbridges community, we embrace the values of collaboration and inclusiveness. The primary activity of this community is the production of a number of live, interactive webcasts. These programs cover a wide range of topics relating to educational technology. Shows are typically streamed live, and listeners can interact with one another as well as the show hosts through a text chat. Recordings of the shows are released as podcasts. Participation in the community is encouraged for anyone who has an interest in educational technology. Participation may take many forms, from simply listening to shows produced by the community to more actively working to produce and distribute content for the network.
