So today’s episode is with Doug Symington (blogger since 2002), an educational designer/technologist in Victoria, BC who responded to my offer last week to add some audio to the post about conferencing with Skype. We chat about Skype as a classroom tool, why so many Canadians seem to be at the cutting edge of these technologies, the and why (or is it if) Tablet PCs are better than Smartboards. I’d meant to get this posted earlier, but it took Ourmedia an interminably long time to make the link appear. (Anyone have a better alternative at this point?) Look for more after the first of the year.
Via Dan Gillmor comes this site by Larry Magid titled Blogsafety.com with links to topics such as “Blogging Rules for Teens,” “Teens Guide to Safe Blogging,” “Advice and Resources for Parents,” and “Advice and Resources for Teachers.” I haven’t had time to go through the links in detail, but since Dan is a trusted node on my network, and Larry is one on his, I just thought I’d link to it since I hadn’t seen it crop up anywhere else. Check out the accompanying blog too…
I was reading weblogged and noticed an error at the top of your blog. The text on the title graphic has the word classroom spelled wrong. It reads “classsroom”. Just thought you’d want to know.
Oy. Been like that for months. Fixed now.
No wonder I didn’t win best individual blog… ;0)
