Every Classroom Matters Show #54: Jerry Blumengarten
“A Discussion with the Connected Educators' Cybrarian”
Note from Vicki Davis: Hat tip to my dear friend Lisa Durff who is joining me as the production coordinator for Every Classroom Matters. While the people at BAM RAdio do an amazing job producing this Internet Radio show, I want to give you better show notes and a more timely post on my blog when shows go live. Lisa Durff worked with me on Flat Classroom and is a dear friend and connector. I'm grateful she is willing to jump in and help as she continues to finish up her doctorate at Walden University in their Ed Tech Program. Lisa drafted this post and is also helping me book and coordinate guests.
