So how many of you are sitting out there reading the blogs and thinking, "I wish I was at NECC".  Well, the good news is that you can relive the best sessions of the conference through a podcast.  All you need to go is go to iTunes and seach for Conference Connections in the podcast library.  If you don’t have iTunes on your computer, it’s a free download for mac or pc! Our own Tom Turner is featured in the Discovery Educator Network session.  Way to go Tom!  You can also listen to Hilary Goldmann on ISTE’s Government Advocacy, Tech4Learning, David Pogue’s Digital Generation Comes of Age, and Jamey Osborne on Creative Commons.  Other sessions featured include Maureen Yoder’s Online Learning Tools 2007, Mitchel Resnick’s Sowing the Seeds for a More Creative Society, Howard Levin’s Making the Laptop Disappear: Moving to Seamless Integration, and many more.

The cool thing about Conference Connections is that Apple has produced this wonderful podcast not just for NECC but for all major conference across the country!  Did you miss a great speaker at FETC?  You can listen to it through Conference Connections! 

If you haven’t explored the world of podcasting,  I highly encourage you to become a podcatcher!


P.S.  If you are interested in presenting at FETC next year, applications are now available.

    Only word I can surmise that will come close is AWESOME. I will post my experiences tomorrow after I sift through everything going on in my brain.

    While you are out there downloading podcast–take a listen to a really fun one. 🙂
    Last Sunday, I was asked to do an interview for an online radio station in Lousiana
    I sent MP3s in ahead of time, and they had some nice prizes for the callers.
    I had been hesitant to try this–but earlier this year I had participated in a webinar with Den and that went well and the connections to phone and web were good–so it gave me confidence to try this. 🙂
    There were a couple technical difficulties–but all in all it ended up being a very entertaining show–with music and even some famous callers. 🙂
    Here is where it is at:

    It is show #13 right there at the top. 🙂
    Have a great summer,
