ETR Weekly #10 – BETT 2009, Wiki textbooks and Education in 2020

21 December 2008

This week’s EdTechRoundup Weekly started with a discussion on what education was going to look like the year 2020. We also discussed who’s doing what at BETT 2009 and a little bit about what people can expect from TeachMeet on the Friday night.

We moved on to discuss wiki textbooks and why they haven’t taken off as well as some ideas for Christmas lessons. 🙂

Many thanks to Joe Dale for sorting out the audio. 🙂


Dai Barnes has collated the links on Diigo here.

Unfortunately the two wiki pixies were not in attendance, meaning the ETR wiki page for this week’s show is looking somewhat sparse…

ETR Weekly #9 – Not quite a ‘blogging special’

3 December 2008

EdTechRoundup Weekly

This week’s EdTechRoundup Weekly followed a week where a lot of people had been busy and therefore not had chance to attend. As a result there was some confusion as to whether it was a ‘blogging special’ or not. In the end, we did mention blogs and issues to do with them, along with:

  • Feedback from the MirandaMod2 (un?)conference
  • Internet filtering and Louise Jones’ Twitter poll
  • A collaborative Google Docs-powered presentation on how to use Netbooks effectively in the classroom
  • A discussion about online calendars, integration with Moodle, and possible ‘homework-casting’ via iTunes!


Dai Barnes is now a firm fan of Diigo for the ETR links. You can access the relevant ones from this week’s meeting here.

Lisa Stevens, a.k.a. wiki pixie herself, is in the process of updating the ETR wiki here to include the notes from the meeting.
