Today in Digital Education

The TIDE is nigh

Talk is cheap. In fact you can record whatever it is you’re saying and deploy it on the web. In a podcast…

TIDEtalks was born on Sunday, 8th March 2015 . It is a recording of me talking about Digital Education with my mate Dr Doug Belshaw, man of Mozilla and many other talents, including Open Badges and Digital Literacies. If you know me online, then you probably know Doug too. We like to talk tech and, at least in TIDEtalks, we try to keep it educentric. Doug and I approach things in different ways and, in my mind, it makes for some interesting conversation. So, we thought we’d make it a regular thing and share it online in case anyone might think the same. There are show notes below the audio so you can get an idea of content before committing yourself to this aural assault.

Any thoughts you have about how we might steer this ship would be great to hear on here or twitter or facebook or wherever. If you are dealing with something you suspect Doug and I might lend an ear to, please knock on our virtual door, or ring the bell.

EdTechRoundUp Hanging Out Again

Do you remember ETRU? It was a weekly podcast I co-hosted with Doug Belshaw and others. We *ceased trading* two years ago because the conversations had, at that point, run dry.

But it’s back! Should you want to get involved in this community (on Google Plus) then please do request an invite. The conversation is all about education technology and the usual suspects┬áparticipants are UK educators (teachers of all sectors and independent consultants). We have met twice so far, the output of which is stored on YouTube.

First introductory meeting (20/10/13):

And yesterday (02/11/13) to discuss the transition of ICT to Computing in the UK:

The agenda is driven by those that attend. Anyone is welcome to contribute or just watch/listen to the conversation. Google Hangouts are limited to 15 participants, so first come is first served. For me, the reason I do this is so I know I have somewhere I can ask questions, reflect on practice, hear other peoples thoughts and learn from their experience. The people who attend are all tweeters and all lovely people. Bonza! What’s not to like?
