I presented to a intermediate level technology edtech group today in Hartford. The theme of my talk was podcasting and how it can be used instrictionally in the k12 classroom. I was impressed with the overall interest. I contineu to be plagued, however, about the amount and types of resources that are needed for the integration of information and communications technologies into the curriculum. Podcasting is a great example. It has so many uses and can provide authentic connections not before possible, but, we need the staff, time, knoweldge, etc to make it happen.
On another note…I saw the new Parallels software boot windows XP in 30 seconds in a windows running in OS X on a new MacBook Pro…so cool!
