We go all Haiku in this episode. Is Star Trek Vulcan Learning and IBM’s Watson the future of education? If you’ve been to the future, drop us an email, we want to know. It’s all about the Relationships people. Don’t turn it in, Publish it! Open your classroom to the world. Back to the one room school house and Scantrons were cool in 1973. Simple and Effective win out over shiny and new any day. We bash on the IWBs again. (Sorry, we can’t help ourselves). Oh yeah, we’re going 1:1 next year and what the heck does that look like in the classroom? Hang on to your seats, as usual, we’re all over the place in this episode.
We discuss Andrew’s visit with Avery Middle School and their 1:1 iPad implementation. Their IT Director, Michael Wells is moving his school into the future in a very cool way. Our favorite web 2.0 services are starting to offer more formal (and possibly limited) Education accounts. Danny covers the Google EdTech News of the past few weeks, eBooks being the big story this week. No, its not windy in studio, once again, we have audio fun as Andrew breaths heavily into the mic during the whole podcast and Danny goes all Cylon near the end. Enjoy!
