I love great educational resources and the power of collaboration. That’s what’s so cool about the Discovery Educator Network! And, also one of the reasons why I applied for the position of Wisconsin DEN Field Manager… collaboration is how educators survive the uphill challenges we face.
Just found Steve Hargadon‘s tremendous podcast and blogging resources. He has a great series of interviews with educational technology leaders like Vicki Davis, David Thornburg, and open source experts.
Today at 5PM Pacific Time Steve has a live interview with Larry Cuban, author of Oversold and Overused: Computers in the Classroom. His linked wiki allows us to post questions for Larry in advance His archive of podcasts provides asynchronous tapping of previous interviews that we miss. And, you can participate in the live chat via WebCast Academy during the interview, as well.
Steve is using blogs, wikis and podcasting in ways that open the doors for meaningful, engaging discussions around critical educational technology topics. The new Internet 2.0 tools are providing forums and seamless communications with lead experts that I could only have dreamed of back in the early net days!
Get out there and check out Steve’s work! EdTechlive.com is a great resource too good to miss!
Gee… I wonder if he is a California DEN Member!
How are you going to use blogs, wikis, and podcasting in your classroom? What hurdles are you facing? How do you get around those challenges?
Very, very cool collaboration tools…
