Long time, no Friday 5! I think I'm going to sporadically send out
Friday 5 lists during the summer as I'm just too busy these days. Here
are a few sites that I've picked up from that National Educational
Computing Conference which concluded today in Philadelphia. I didn't see
as many sessions as I normally have in past years, so I don't have a
slew of sites to pass on. However, the buzz at NECC seemed to revolve
around podcasts and blogging, so many of this week's list revolve around
those topics. In light of how podcasting, blogging and RSS feeds are
taking off, I am now going to try and add the Friday 5 to my blog and
hopefully I'll even attempt a podcast this summer. Stay tuned!
eSchool News Conference Information Center NECC 2005 Weblog
I wrote a few entries for this blog, but they are not posted yet. Make
sure you browse this blog, especially if you were unable to attend the
conference. It's a great way to learn about resources presented during
the three day event.
This school was well represented during several sessions. I attended a
foreign language one and I was particularly impressed with the efforts
of their technology integration specialist.
Apple - ITunes - Podcasting
Apple recently announced new podcasting capabilities from within iTunes
for both Mac and PC users. I downloaded the new version of iTunes and
it's unbelievably easy to subcribe to podcasts now.
This is the blog and podcast home of Chicagoan Steve Denbo. Formerly
tech director at another independent school, this man is bravely
returning teaching this fall in the form of a CPS kindergarten teacher.
More power to him! Anyway, he was an emerging star at NECC as he has
been leading the way with podcasting.
Podcasting for Educators - Warlick's Wiki
David Warlick gave a very witty and fun presentation on podcasting today
at NECC. This web site contains his PowerPoint presentation as well as
other podcasting resources.
