What Do Teachers Need to Know About Technology?

This presentation was developed for a colleague's education survey class. I was asked to speak on what teachers need to know about technology. I hope I made the point that what teachers need to know isn't so much about which buttons to push as it is about how to think critically about the context(s) for using technology as teaching and learning tools.

What Makes a Good Digital Video?

In this brief podcast, we'll take a look at the elements that make a video an effective digital storytelling tool. At the end of the podcast is a short video, "Carving an Alaska Sea Otter," produced by a young person from Whittier, AK. After viewing the video, be critical of the Sea Otter movie in terms of how these elements were addressed in the video. By "critical," I mean to point out the effective elements as well as those that you might feel are lacking in some respect. Make sure to address each element (story, camerawork, editing, and audio) when you create your response.

Your response will go into the class wiki and will be shared with the rest of the class members.

Podcasting 101
