We discuss who we are as a 'Educational Technology' community and how we can get our community's message spread to a wider audience. A quick look at a few different wikipedia entries for ed tech will show you how silent the community has been... With the recent discussions about DOPA and Blackboard, that community voice is more important than ever.
EdTechTalk58 Community Forum, Part2 has three parts. The first is a conversation about the Blackboard patent with the first breakout group including dave cormier, Stephen Downes, Michael Feldstein and Lee Baber. The second session is a breakout session led by Jeff Lebow talking about the DOPA issue. And part three sees us all get back together and wrap up by talking about what the community can do about these issues. (the audio is a little shaky for the second sessions but recovers for section 3)

I ran into a very interesting person on Friday. She started talking about micro-education projects in Brazil, cutting edge education at MIT and how the television was the key technology in breaking down accessibility barriers. I said... "wow, you've gotta come on the show and tell us about it." she said yes.
