Viewer Questions!

Pam from Shell Beach, CA writes in:

Do you think the iPads lend themselves to students developing more “creative” content than the Netbooks?
Is that why your school chose them?
Do you think they are worth double the cost of the Netbooks?

Danny brings up the Chromebook.

Episode 23 My Cr-48 And Me

Episode 23 My Cr-48 And Me

In this episode:

We talk about the Chrome OS Cr-48 “beta” notebook Google shipped out to Danny and not Andrew. As Christopher Dawson points out, the Cr-48 presents some interesting possibilities for schools, if the price is right. Chrome for Enterprise, finally. MSI files and ADM files, yeah!  Another Google Demo Slam: Epic Docs Animation all done with a Google Presentation.  Danny does yet another presentation – Web Tools for Agricultural Education (hire him, he’s really good). Danny finds a new web based screencasting sight that doesn’t work on the CR-48 – screencastle.com.  Jim Klein’s ubermix has Chrome OS beat! (So says Andrew) and Danny can’t get enough Sesame Street.

Episode 22 “Ummy In The Wind, With iPads”

Episode 22 Ummy in the Wind, With iPads

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!
