Welcome to the EdTechTalk newsletter for August 7, 2010 through August 20, 2010. North America is getting ready to return to school during the next couple weeks. We expect several shows to return to a regular broadcast schedule at that time. During the last couple of weeks while many of us were intense upon enjoying the last of our summer’s, the following shows were on the air.
This summer, we could feel the energy growing around teachers building curriculum about the BP oil spill. This episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers one example. This conversation is part of our ongoing series of podcasts focused on collecting stories, ideas, curriculum, connections, and resources that will help us teach about the Gulf oil spill this fall. Our guests include:
- Teachers who worked together on project plans, It Affects Us All, in Suzie Boss’s Problem-based Learning camp at Edutopia join us.
- We are also joined by Andy Rosenbloom, Program Director for the Virtual Team Challenge: Spill!
- Teachers from the Gulf join us as well. Even though on this show we feature teachers and resources from "elsewhere," it is always a welcomed moment when we can hear from our new friends from along the Gulf Coast.
- Oh, if you listen to the end, you’ll catch Bill Fitzgerald who had just put up Voices on the Gulf hours before this webcast.
If you haven’t joined us at Voices on the Gulf and at Youth Voices, please consider joining now. These are the best ways for keeping up with the work of this community of teachers represented on this podcast this fall.
Ever wondered what kind of change process is involved in moving from a proprietry LMS scuh as Blackboard to an Open Source system such as Moodle. Keith Lynip, director of Extended Learning Services at The University of Montana, discusses the nature of this process in this week’s show.
Teachers Teaching Teachers #210 – Eywitnesses to the largest oil spill in U.S. history – 07.21.10 The series of podcasts about the Gulf oil spill that we started at the beginning of June continues on this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers.
We are joined by Alicia Blair a 5th grade science teacher from Mississippi who has been an important voice on many of these podcasts this summer.
It was also a delight to listen to Ann Dobie, author, professor, and former Writing Project Director from Louisiana.
