We’re back with our first podcast of 2010
EdTech Posse Podcast 6.1 – No tech after 5 p.m.
Mike Wesch presented at the University of Saskatchewan and University of Regina earlier this week. We discussed his presentations and reflected on some of the changes that might result from educators becoming aware of his work/message.
- Rick’s conversation/video podcast with Mike Wesch
- Mike Wesch’s presentation at the University of Regina: The (Digital) Writing on the Walls (and why the walls don’t matter anymore (Ustream recording)
- Digital Ethnography research group site
- Mike Wesch on twitter
- 2010 Haiti Earthquake (If you are in Canada and interested in donating, the CBC has compiled a list of organizations that are providing relief. The federal government will match donations made by individuals between now and Feb. 12, 2010)
- The Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock iPhone app – as endorsed by Dean
Prognostications for 2010:
- Rick – reinvestment of classroom video capture (we’re not in favour of this due to it’s reinforcement of traditional classroom models)
- Dean – advocacy/adoption of interactive whiteboards in classrooms (we have some of the same concerns about this as above)
- Rob – mobile technology (netbooks, the mythological Apple Tablet)
Promote/plug (things we think you might be interested in):
- Coyote Chalk blog written by Cori Saas, a former student of Dean’s
- The College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan. Rick says that great things are happening there.
- “Shop Class as Soul Craft” by Matthew Crawford is next on Rob’s reading list for books to read on his iPod touch using the Kobobooks app (terrific ebook seller). Matthew was recently heard on episode 97 of the CBC Radio program Spark.
Thanks to Rob for recording, editing and supplying the show notes:
