Presentation Title
“EdTechTalk: A Network of Homegrown Webcasters”

Description
We will present the history and development of the EdTechTalk Channel of the Worldbridges Network through screencasts and audio and video interviews of our show hosts. In little over 2 years, the channel has gone from one weekly webcast to eight weekly interactive webcasts using the newest and most interactive web based media. EdTechTalk is a professional learning community that is participatory and open. Goal: The goal of this session is to create a documentary view of the development of the EdTechTalk channel of the Worldbridges network. To share the vision of founders Jeff Lebow and Dave Cormier and the stories of the webcasters on the network. Through this documentation, we hope to inspire more participation and/or parallel learning community work.

    I became aware of EdTech from the K-12 online conference. Prior to that time, I had used the internet for job searches, information for lessons, and email. Since I heard about Web 2.0, teacher collaboration, and many of the teacher programs, I became interested in collaborating with other teachers and media specialists to help students learn how to learn in ways they will listen.

    Thank you for making me feel like part of the community. I am confident that with the knowledge I am acquiring through Edtech, that once I do find a position, I will be able to interest both administrators and teachers in using Web 2.0 lessons.
