Innovate---Journal of Online Education Redesign!

I'm pretty proud of my very first peer-reviewed professional journal paper, released in the October/November volume 2, 2005, issue number 1 of innovate-Journal of Online Education; and this exraordinary resource for educators K-20 (and learners of any level) has gone on since then to release issue after issue of valuable research driven papers and webinars. It's just this month released a GREAT site redesign. Hence this post. See my paper, "Videoconferencing K-12: The state of the Art," at the new site.

I've done several of the former but none of the latter and I'm hoping that if one is accepted over the other that the poster goes through. I didn't even make it to the poster floor last year in Atlanta but I recall from the year before that it can be a busy place; plus it'll be a challenge for me to put together something in a new (two hour!) format. I'm so proud of the work that's going on at the school that I'd love to get the chance to share it out…

ISTE Podcasting Webinar Plug!

Hey, ya'll,

I want to share a little video I put up at TeacherTube a few minutes ago. My school's technology department is adding a little article each week on how our teachers are adopting technology, and I took the opportunity yesterday to drop in on Matthew Haber, USN's podcasting teacher and this year's Nashville Scene "Best High School Teacher" (USN's Joel Bezaire came in number 3:) just after he had attended an online webinar from ISTE. I've been to several of these, folks, and they are genuinely worth the hour of one's time and the 50 dollar fee an ISTE member pays. Visit the ISTE website to learn more. Meanwhile, here's the one minute vid:
