EdTechTalk Newsletter-Week of September 13-19, 2008

Week of September 13-19, 2008

Hello EdTechTalkers:

Welcome to the this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk (ETT) Weekly Newsletter. There have been some excellent shows this past week but sometimes it takes up to a week for the shows to be uploaded and posted to EdTechTalk. If you "can’t wait" for the next newsletter, you can always check the home page of ETT to see the latest show postings (https://edtechtalk.net ). EdTechTalk Brainstorm is starting a new series of webcasts for the next several weeks (Thursdays, 6:00pm EDT) that will focus on using Drupal for education. If you’re interested in exploring Drupal, have specific questions, or just want to learn more, please join Doug Symington and his ETBS group each week. We have created a wikispace to compile questions/answers and resources for Drupal. http://drupalfordummies.wikispaces.com/. You’re invited to join the conversation and contribute!

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, it embraces the values of collaboration and inclusiveness. The primary activity of the 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 and 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.
