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.
