EdTechTalk: 21st Century Learning #43
One Year Anniversary and Jeff Lebow from Worldbridges
May 15, 2007

This week we celebrated our one year anniversary, woot! We have managed to get to our 43rd episode, only taking a few weeks off for vacation last summer. We reflect on what it has been like, and bring in our mentor Jeff Lebow, founder of Worldbridges to discuss 21st Century Learning and EdTechTalk.com

We also discussed the recent NY Times article about schools getting rid of their laptop programs. We gave some of our own critiques and discussed how schools could be more successful with 1:1 initiatives. 

Next week, we'll be discussing faculty professional development with Jeff Ritter, from St. John's School in Houston Texas. See you all then.
