Episode 10: The Tweetisode

Show Notes:

In this episode:  Andrew remembers that IWB’s come with integrated curriculum – duh! Jon Corippo is straight out of the pool and back for a third guest appearance to sum up ISTE10 in three words – “Interactive whiteboard glut”, Jon also recommends checking out the SP Controls Doceri A/V switch with iPad integration and the Vidifox WebCam with a touch screen interface, Danny is jealous of Jon’s Google Block Party experience and the great games Jon got to play to win swag (even though Danny would have just bought anything with a Google logo on it anyway), Danny forgets all about  http://googletreks.org/ and Andrew and Danny cover some of their favorite tweets from the past week.

Episode 8: “Another Year Bites The Dust”

Episode 8: Another Year Bites The Dust

Final days of the fiscal school year and the crunch is on.  We talk about how iTalc can be used (or not) for Classroom management (finally some school tech).  We might actually get some Grants next year. How do you go after money for Tech?  Leave us some feed back on the WordPress site (no its not Google Sites anymore).  The jinx is still on; no iPhone 4 for us.  The power of the iPhone 4 camera/video – The Ducati “156 Turns” iPhone 4 movie and BONUS: “Apple of My Eye” – another cool iPhone 4 film.  Andrew upgrades a 3G to iOS 4 (woof, woof) and then jailbreaks it for fun.
