Teachers Teaching Teachers #140 – Looking to the Future with Sheri Edwards and Matt Montagne – 02.18.09

Sheri Edwards and Matt Montagne joined Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim on this podcast.

Sheri has been teaching for decades at the Nespelem School, a public school located on the Colville Indian Reservation in Nespelem in the state of Washington, USA. They have 139 students in grades preschool through grade eight.

Sheri is involved in so much that her remarks in this podcast can only be considered an brief introduction to the rich resource that can be found in her work.

We are delighted that some of her students have begun to publish in Youth Voices. For example, west31 writes: "I think wrestling is very competitive and fun because you get to flop people around, show your skills an quickness. Also you don’t always use your strength for wrestling, you use smarts against your opponents.

This is why I think wrestling is fun and competitive.  What do like about wrestling?  What techniques do you use?" Wrestling is fun and Competitive.

Listen to the podcast, and consider joining us as we journey together in collaborative, digital publishing.

Matt Montagne also join us to tell us more about Earthcast 09, which will be a 24 hour live webcastahon on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009. Matt told us about other projects as well, check out the chat notes, below, to see links to these project as well, including a student webcast the he has been nurturing: Gator Radio Experience

Both Matt and Sheri left us wanting to know more.

It’s Elementary #30, Wikis in Education

JeffUtechtIt’s Elementary interviewed Jeff Utech from the Thinking Stick.  After a roller coaster ride on the Ustream train and some very interesting audio looping :-), we were able to salvage the last 20 minutes of the conversation.  Thanks to all that showed your patience and support during our live show and especially to Jeff Utech for his spirit of collaboration and a great example of an edtech superstar.  Make sure to check out all the great links in the Text Chat

This was the kind of conversation that needed more time. Listen as nine teachers from six states — Paul Allison, NY, Lee Baber, VA , Glen Bledsoe, OR, Susan Ettenheim, NY, Kevin Hodgson, MA, Eric Hoefler, VA, Matt Makowetski, CA, Chris Sloan, UT, and Ken Stein, NY (plus a father from China) — who use blogs, discussion boards, and other Web-based communication tools in their classrooms tell stories about the first half of the academic year. We report on what we have been learning about blogging (and using wikis) with students. We also begin to talk about what our plans are for the remainder of the year.

Take a look at our ever expanding Google Notebook for this show: Teachers Teaching Teachers 01.10.07

In the comments at the bottom of this post, please join us with your thoughts about what you’ve learned teaching students to communicate online. What are your stories? Let’s see how many more states — and countries — we can add to the list as we check in with colleagues from all over the globe.

We also want to talk about how to help students who will be ending their classes with us in January can find some closure with their blogs without closing off the possiblities of keeping an ongoing blog.

And please join us next week — and every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern — in the text chat room at EdTechTalk.com.
