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.

Episode 7: “Four Lone Nuts”

Episode 7: Four Lone Nuts

Show notes:

In this episode: Today’s special guest: Joe Bower from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. And back again, Jon Corippo (the “Helpful Guy”) from Minarets High School, Oneal’s, CA. Joe talks about how he got into blogging (“For the Love of Learning”), the education reforms taking place in Alberta, Canada, field trips and his views on National Standards and Grades. We touch on Finland’s Teacher Centric Approach to reforming their Education System: http://www.rethinkingschools.org/archive/24_04/24_04_finland.shtml and http://www.edutopia.org/international-teaching-learning-assessment-video. Jon shares his experiences and thoughts on teaching without textbooks and pimps the Rock Star Teacher Summer Tech Camp, at Minarets High School August 3-5, 2010. Danny didn’t get an iPhone 4 but the guy sitting next to him at lunch did. Andrew deals with technical problems, most of which are on the cutting room floor (and apologizes for typing so loud during the podcast).
