EdTechRoundUp

edtechroundup logoI am pleased and excited to announce the release of the EdTechRoundUp podcast. We are a growing group of UK based educators committed to helping others implement the best educational technology has to offer.

EdTechRoundUp is a place where a group of UK-based educators come together for discussion and collaboration around the use of technology in education. We believe in pedagogically-sound uses of educational technology, but don’t believe in ramming Web 2.0 (or anything else for that matter) down people’s throats?

The inaugural show is available via the blog or through an iTunes feed. Sinclair Mackenzie and David Noble are at the helm for the first show and are joined by Joe Dale in a short interview about blogging.

Our aim is to deliver common sense advice and guidance that is practical to teachers – much of what we will talk about has been tried and tested with our classes. The shows will be hosted by two different people each week – to see who is involved please visit the contacts page on the wiki.

In the first show Sinclair and David discuss ClassTools.net and the problems of online content being blocked in schools. I have used the ClassTools site before and it is a great addition to your online toolkit – we hope you find the advice useful and the debate engaging.

I will be hosting the next show with John Johnston which will be available very soon.

Please let me know what you make of the first show as we really value the feedback. We are happy to welcome new teachers willing to work with us so drop by the wiki and get involved – if you feel the urge to contribute please add your name to the wiki.
