Recent interviews: Flat Classroom and Beginning Blogs and Wikis

Interview about the Flat Classroom Project

Yesterday, Steve Hargadon over at the infinite thinking machine and I talked about the flat classroom project. You can hear our discussion and also learn about Chris Craft‘s meeting with students in Peru via Skype.

Beginning Blog and Wikis Interview

I also spent about an hour with the guys over at TechPodZone yesterday talking about an introduction to blogs and wikis. It was a discussion tailored for beginners so if you're new to this, you should take a listen to the discussion. They are amazing podcasters and I've learned a lot from them (including the cool free podcast producing program – PodProducer.) (In fact, Mike is called the Podfather at his school.)

They did a great job with the interview! They are a lot of fun to talk to!

I just listened to the TechPodZone interview, and really enjoyed it! This week I’ve had students working on their first (and my first!) wiki, so it was neat to hear some of your thoughts on how they can be used. I especially liked your comment about how schoolwork is normally never seen by anyone besides the teachers, not even parents. It gave me the idea to mention my students’ project in our school’s weekly parent newsletter, so that the parents can see what their kids have been working on.

Just wanted to thank you for providing a bit of inspiration! :) I just found your blog a couple of days ago and will continue to read along.
