EdTechSomething#0
@eduquestion possibilities for show reboot

March 30, 2014

While the EdTechWeekly Show has been 'on hiatus' for quite a while, our skype group chat has remained active. Yesterday Dave posted...

I just had an idea for resurrecting edtechtalk...
twitter hashtag #Edneeds (or something better)
use ifttt to automagically get it to post to a wordpress account
carry other tags as category
encourage people (through sharing service on the wordpress) to volunteer answers
do  a weekly review show going over some of the cooler problems/solutions
would take an hour to build
15 minutes of prep before show
done and done
Jen & Jeff were on board right away and (of course) John had his curmudgeonly doubts, but we were all quite pleased to Hangout together again on a Sunday Night/Monday Morning and discuss possibilities.

EdTechWeekly 203 - OERu, The Missing Middle Piece, & Change11 Interaction ?'s


64:43 minutes (29.62 MB)

EdTechWeekly#203
October 30, 2011

Topics: Jen starts us off by examining issues brought out during Rory McGreal's Change11 presentation about 'OER for Learning' and OERu Specifically, we contemplate the role of the teacher and/or learning institution when using Open Educational Resources and what about the 'missing piece' between open content and assessment?  John relates this all to his current MOOC experience and his daughter's experience being virtually schooled. Jeff harasses Dave a bit about the lack of interaction during Change11's Friday reflection sessions and the boys stick around for a short post-show as Jen flees the scene.  A good time was had by all.
