OzTeachers Skypecast

Following on from the success of the “When Night Falls” Skypecast that concluded the recent K12 Online Conference, I offered to run a similar Skypecast for members of the Australian OzTeachers group.

If you have an interest in education, you might like to drop in to say g’day. It starts at 10:00am Saturday morning (AEST), or 6:00pm Friday evening (US EST). You’ll have to do the math for other timezones.

Update:  It was quite a success and about 30 people showed up.  Keep your eye out for the next one, which we will do as a conference rather than a Skypecast I think…

  1. Hi Chris
    Thought I would be the first to congratulate you on your organisational and entrepenurial skills in setting up the first ozteachers skypecast. As you can see by the list postings everyone was really impressed and thought it was a great idea.
    I have really enjoyed being part of the action and hope that we can continue to work and share together.
    I must catch up with you also about the possibility of moving over to edublogs.
    still haven’t decided whether to or not but it would be good to know if it’s easier than I think it might be.
    thanks again Anne

  2. Thanks Anne, It was good fun. There were a few technical hitches, but overall it was pretty smooth. Thanks to you and all the other wonderful OzTeachers for being there.
    I’ll have some snippets up as a podcast shortly…

  3. Hey Chris,

    It was lots of fun :). It was even better to hear from and “see” later that some of the oz-teachers who have/might have been lurkers are encouraged to go another step along the way.

    Interesting to hear however that many think that some of us are, (excluding yourself who can definitely lay claim to the term) considered to be “experts”. Oh if only we can re-inforce that underneath the rhetoric we sometimes employ, we are paddling ever so furiously under the water. Once more people hook into the “fun” of making this sometimes very clunky technology do what we want it to, the sooner the technology will realise the potential.

    Leading the way with activities like Saturdays will help speed the process.

  4. I agree John
    I think it’s all about jumping in with both eyes open, trying a few things, being prepared for a few things to go a bit haywire and the occasional thing to work really well. More than anything it’s about attitude and being willing to have a go…like both of you – who are leading the way.

That's all well and good, but what do YOU think?
