Wednesday workouts

May 5th, 2012 · No Comments · Professional Developments, Resources, Tech Classrooms, Tech Tools

For the past few weeks, I have been spending 1 hour each Wednesday in a Google+ hangout with other educators from around the world as part of Paul Allison’s  Teachers Teaching Teachers and EdTechTalk series.

I started these mental, verbal and educational workouts because I received an invite from Paul Allison of YouthVoices.  We began meeting with other Youth Voicers to discuss the interaction of our students within our online community.  We have talked about string games, educating students, Trayvon Martin, virtual worlds/games and now we are discussing Howard Rheingold’s Net Smart and an accompanying college syllabus that he has developed.

For our latest hangout we were continuing our Net Smart book talk with:

+Paul Allison +monika hardy and +Chris Sloan are joined by +Howard Rheingold +Fred Mindlin +Valerie Burton+Mariana Rios +christian romero and Jeff Lebow

Below is a video from that hangout.  The quality is so-so.  We had more that 20 people jumping in and out of that hangout.
