EdTechRoundUp Weekly #18 – School subjects, Open Sim, the Semantic Web and Digital Britain

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!


The area for discussing this podcast is on the ETRU Forum here.
