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.
