EdTech Posse 7.2

Really has it been almost 6 months since we last recorded? That's bad. 

But it's great to chat again with the posse. As an added bonus we took over #ds106radio and recorded it live. Alec, Heather, Rob and I are joined by my daughter Meredith as she talks about her new book. Alec shares a bit about his recent trip to Australia and Heather and I talk chat a bit about my new gigs. 

If you like silliness and seriousness all mixed together, you might enjoy this. 

Oh, by the way, if you're wondering about image I used, you'll have to listen, at least to the first 5 minutes.

The Posse and Sir Ken Robinson

This post was last updated on September 5th, 2011 at 11:03 am

4/5's of the Posse gathered at Convocation Place at the University of Saskatchewan to hear Sir Ken Robinson. You seen his TED talk right?  If not, go watch it now.


Anywho, as usual we had a great time talking, laughing, being silly and of course, as sure as I'll spill food on my clothes, Rob brings out the microphone and begins recording.

No theme, no purpose, just friends yacking. After Sir Ken, Rob and I hit a local coffee shop for the debrief.

Just because I felt like it, I've added some show notes. I haven't done that for a while. Enjoy.

EdTech Posse 5.4 Grumpy Old Digital Residents

We missed Rick and Alec but welcomed back Heather Ross and Kyle Lichtenwald as we talk about digital safety and identity, digital residents and digital tourists. I was able to elaborate further on the debacle of the other night’s presentation. I actually don’t show up until about 15 minutes into the conversation. I was busy eating donuts. Thanks to Rob for the quick turn around.… Read the rest
