EdTechRoundUp Weekly #88 – #TEDxLondon and #DMLbadges

18 September 2011

ETRU WeeklyThis week’s podcast is a lot better than last week’s, thank goodness! Doug Belshaw, Dai Barnes, Pete Bell and Nick Dennis were around on Skype to discuss the TEDxLondon event and the launch of DML ‘badges’.

We mentioned Google Art Project right at the end of the discussion but Call Recorder for Skype managed to cut that off. Sorry.

EdTechRoundUp Weekly #87 – How NOT to record a podcast…

11 September 2011

ETRU Weekly

The should-know-better award goes to Doug Belshaw this week, who managed to not only get kicked out of Google+ several times, but also managed to record everyone else *except* himself.

As a result, this is a much shorter podcast than usual. Our apologies, we’ll be back to normal (or what substitutes for ‘normal’) soon!


EdTechRoundUp Weekly #86 – ICT curriculum, ALT-C 2011 and more!

10 September 2011

ETRU Weekly

We missed a couple of weeks (apologies!) due to various commitments. In addition, this week’s recording is both amusing and frustrating. Amusing due to the fun we had putting it together; frustrating in that the audio recording dropped due to Camtasia being more-than-averagely flaky on Dai’s Mac.

Oh well, you can’t win them all.🙂


EdTechRoundUp Weekly #85 – Flipped thinking and more on Open Badges

14 August 2011

ETRU WeeklySince we’ve relaunched we’ve had different and new people joining us each week on the Google+ hangout, which is great. This week we had Darren, Marc, Nick and Debs sharing their thoughts and opinions on a range of things including Open Badges (again!), Dropbox alternatives and ‘flipped’ classrooms.

Notes (links and quotations) are below for further investigation:

EdTechRoundUp Weekly #84 – Mozilla Open Badges and assessment

12 August 2011

ETRU WeeklyWe had a problem with capturing the audio last time around when Doug tried to not only record but stream out the audio. This week we not only managed to sort it properly (thanks Dai!) and also captured the links. Epic win.

Our weekly Sunday night discussions will once again go out as ‘EdTechRoundUp Weekly’. This episode is therefore #84.

We’re back with weekly Google+ Hangouts!

31 July 2011

Google PlusIn preparation for a full re-launch in September 2011 we’ve starting meeting up again in Google+ on Sunday evenings at 20.00 BST (GMT+1) to discuss all things related to educational technology and e-learning.

As a bit of experiment we recorded last week’s Google+ Hangout and have added it to the podcast feed. We’re aware of some quality issues but we’d love to hear your feedback!

EdTechRoundUp Weekly #83 – What’s Hapenning at KS3?

4 October 2010
