Part 4 of 4. Look for new and exciting episodes to come…
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.

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).
