Podcasts for Your Classroom

Stacey Franks showed me this great website- www.learninghand.com– where you can find educational podcasts in all subjects from around the world. Very cool! Please take a moment to click around the website. Tony Vincent has put learninginhand.com together. Check out his blog, too, you’ll learn what he has been up to and what he has planned when it comes to handheld computing, podcasts, iPods and other mobile devices! As Tony says about podcasting, “Remember, you don’t need an iPod or handheld to be a part of podcasting–you can listen right from your web browser. Whatever personal device you may use to listen to podcasts, learning is certainly in hand!”

1 week ’til METC

This morning I was able to check out the St. Charles Convention Center– the site for the Midwest Education Technology Conference (while I was there, we conducted successful test calls for the videoconferences we have lined up).  This is our first year at this convention center.  The space was very cool- spacious with a nice lay out, clearly labeled rooms, plenty of (free) parking, the works.  We’re really excited to have grown into it…  registration for METC has now topped 1,300! Attendees will include (but not limited to) educators from Missouri, South Dakota, Arkansas, Kansas, Tennessee, and Illinois.  Even though we’re a week away, it’s not too late to register if you are interested in attending.
