Welcome to this week’s edition of the EdTechTalk (ETT) Weekly Newsletter – the
first issue of the new year! Many shows were on haitus and have
recently returned to their regular show times. Be sure to listen to
recently posted podcastings of ETT’s weekly shows so you don’t miss any
of the exciting discussions and ETT events!
With the start of the new year, many of us created personal and professional new year’s
resolutions. If you missed the Conversations show last week featuring
ETT show hosts Lisa Parisi and Maria Knee, joined by Dave Cormier,
discussing resolutions and goals for 2009 be sure to listen to the
recording. Very inspiring and motivating! If learning something new was
a new year’s resolution as shared by Maria Knee, be sure listen to the
recorded episode of EdTechWeekly as they kicked off the new year
showcasing some awesome tech resources. ‘Seedlings’ show hosts welcomed
Maine educators Dan and Jeff from ‘Wicked Decent Learning’ to discuss
their weekly ed tech podcasts. If you missed the original broadcast be
sure to listen to the recording for a wickedly decent session of
learning about their lively podcast contributions to the world of ed
tech – you won’t be disappointed!
