ETR Weekly #14 – Work/life balance, Computing histories & have we finally lost patience with Edublogs.org?

27 January 2009

Dai Barnes ably guided us through this week’s packed agenda. We managed to squeeze into the 50-odd minutes:

  • Work/life balance
  • Your history of computing
  • Nintendo DS – what games to buy and when to use them
  • Is there such a thing as a good Acceptable User Policy (AUP)? 
  • Blog hosts – have we finally lost patience with the ads on Edublogs.org?

Many thanks to John Johnston for grabbing the audio from the FlashMeeting!

ETR Weekly #13 – BETT 2009, TeachMeet and Diigo

21 January 2009

Joe Rowing expressed a desire to lead the discussion this week and did a bang-up job of keeping everyone on track. After Doug Belshaw plugged our weekly FlashMeetings at TeachMeet on the Friday night of BETT 2009, we had a record turnout – 25 – on the Sunday evening! The discussion focused on the best and worst elements of BETT, how TeachMeet might be both protected and developed, and the merits of Diigo over Delicious for social bookmarking.

ETR Weekly #12 – BETT 2009, Jumpbox, and more!

14 January 2009

Dai Barnes did a sterling job steering the conversation this week. Whether it was because it was the week before the all-pervasive BETT 2009, because it was the weekend after the first week back at school, or a combination of the two, there were less in attendance. Thankfully, the quality of the conversation didn’t drop with the numbers and, in fact, the fruits of the discussion in terms of an installation of Jumpbox, can be found at EdTechRoundup.co.uk 🙂

ETR Weekly #11 – CPD, Edtech-related resolutions, and more on Education in 2020

7 January 2009

The first EdTechRoundup Weekly FlashMeeting of 2009 saw a welcome return of the mix of (mainly UK-based) educators discussing all things to do with educational technology. Daniel Needlestone discussed the slot he had to promote edtech/elearning at his school during an in-service training day. After that, we discussed the resolutions we’d made relating to educational technology, and then we talked more about education in 2020.

Happy New Year!

Many thanks to John Johnston for sorting out the audio. 🙂
