The Podcast: Driving from NECC

I always enjoy a good double meaning in a title, so I’m pleased that this podcast, recorded during my drive home from NECC, is called what it is.  I find myself driving at the moment, refreshed and recharged.  That’s what I wanted out of the conference.  I’m pleased it worked that way, and grateful to lots of folks for all the conversation and push back.  It is good to be in community (or communities, or whatever) with smart folks.  I wanted to get this podcast up, mostly for my own benefit, before I lost some of that momentum.

I’m off to the beach for a week, hoping to top off my batteries, and will be doing my best to be offline – but I’d welcome your comments here on the podcast as a way of keeping me driving and moving when I return.

Oh – and below is a piece of the conversation that I mentioned in the ‘cast.  Thanks to Kevin Honeycutt for recording it and Darren Draper and David Jakes for facilitating the conversation.  Not sure if a complete recording exists, but you’ll get the gist of the conversation, one of my favorites.

You can find most, but again, not all, of the K12 Online Conference presentation I reference online over at Wes’s place.

  1. I like your comment about the negative aspect of recorded presentations/uStreams because they are always there. This reminds me of many blog posts/websites I’ve bookmarked over time with the intention of going back and taking a look at them because I know they are there. However, there are still a bunch that I have not gone back to revisit – I hope I do at some point.

  2. I’ve been spending the past 2 days listening my way through the webcasts and was glad to find your driving podcast.

    I’d like to add my thoughts on the idea of rules in edublogging. Though I’m not the most active blogger, I do pop into some circles.
    I have asked myself the same question about rules. However, the conclusion I came to was a very different one.
    I agree with you that there are not rules per say. Instead, I see models of practice that determine the way people communicate. And as the groups may change, so may these models of practice to some extent.
    And these models, I have found, are often better than many I have encountered f2f.

  3. There were 2 concerns I and some others had coming out of NECC. You will bring more teachers to ed tech by showing them current examples from other classes, and we need to talk about ed tech as part of the larger curriculum by going to those conference.

    I did the Ed Tech PD manifesto here: http://movingforward.wikispaces.com/ProfessionalDevelopmentManifesto

    Stephanie Sandifer has added this list of upcoming conferences and their submission deadlines: http://movingforward.wikispaces.com/Conferences

    Meeting you and Stephanie was definitely a highlight of NECC. It was great talking with you and hope we have a chance to do so in the future.
