The Common Craft folks are at it again. This time, the focus is podcasting. It’s made less with education in mind, but it still provides an overview of the technology.
Here is yet another intriguing video on why we should consider technology as integral to education:

Notice the desire to create, remix and use technology to explore the world.
Peace (in illumination),
Happy New Year!
Matt Needleman is re-launching his Video in the Classroom website and if you are interested in exploring this world with your students, this site is a good place to begin. Matt has pulled together examples, links and ideas on how to get started. The site is still under construction but it remains a place to visit and learn from.
(disclosure: Matt has profiled me and the work of my students at his site, including this podcast that Matt has put together with three teachers who do claymation in the classroom. The podcast is great and Matt gets at the inside of creating a clay movie with students in the classroom from a variety of viewpoints. I got some nice tips on using tinfoil on the inside of the clay figures to keep them from falling over — we call it the “melting” of the clay.).
Thanks, Matt, for sharing your resources with the rest of us. He is also launching a Blog Carnival and seeks your submissions for blog posts or articles related to video in the classroom.
Also, Matt is going to be this week’s host for the Day in a Sentence feature and more information about that will be coming tomorrow.
Peace (in sharing),
