EdTechRoundUp Weekly #19 – Edtech videos, indispensible tools, copyright, and iPhone apps in education

11 March 2009

ETRU WeeklyThis week’s meeting was led by Dai Barnes. We had a packed agenda to get through, mostly contributed by Dai himself! The majority of our conversation centred around the use of children in videos calling for educational change, the ins-and-outs of copyright legislation in UK schools, and iPhone apps that are useful in education. Joe Rowing had a quick rant about RocketScience and Dave Stacey wanted our opinions on netbooks in classrooms. All good stuff! 🙂

Many thanks to Joe Rowing for grabbing the audio from the FlashMeeting!

6 March 2009

ETRU WeeklyThis week’s meeting was led by Joe Rowing and then, after some problems with FlashMeeting, wrapped up by Dai Barnes. We discussed whether educational technology contributes to the demise of school subjects, whether the ‘Semantic Web’ is something educators should be getting involved with now, Open Sim, and the ins-and-outs of the Digital Britain report.

Many thanks to Sinclair Mackenzie for grabbing the audio from the FlashMeeting!
