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


57:50 minutes (17.76 MB)

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.

Teachers Teaching Teachers #135: Opening up to Fair Use - 01.14.09


59:45 minutes (19.32 MB)

We have a least three reasons for you to listen to this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers.

  1. Last semester, Susan Ettenheim, Sarah Sutter, and Chris Sloan brought their digital photography classes together on Youth Voices. Susan and Sarah had their students share final projects in the week before this podcast. In the beginning of this podcast, Susan and Sarah talk about their work together from this semester, and where it might go in the future. Also, you might want to check out more at their online community: Digital Photography | Youth Voices.


  2. The middle half-hour of this podcast is devoted to a lively conversation with Peter Jaszi from the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property at Washington College of Law, American University. Professor Jaszi has been one of the coordinators of a process of knowledge-building and consensus-making that recently led to the publication of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for media Literacy Education -- http://centerforsocialmedia.org/medialiteracy. Those of us who work with students to publish, distribute and discuss their work online are always dealing with issues of copyright and intellectual property. It was exciting to re-think the issues of fair use with Peter Jaszi.
  3. Two MIT alumni also joined us on this podcast. Jack Yu and Nori Yoshida were class mates at MIT, and now they've launched an SAT vocabulary video contest at Brainyflix.com. We asked them how came up with this idea for using Internet tools to help young people with the SAT. We also wondered what else they are planning.
