Teachnet Cloud Computing Podcast

Recently I was asked to take part in a podcast on cloud computing by Teachnet. This was my third contribution to Teachnet’s brilliant podcasts – and my first that had nothing to do with Interactive Whiteboards! I’ve been using cloud computing for longer than the term has been bandied about but I am certainly no expert on it. I was intrigued by the other two speakers on the programme who had some really interesting things to say about the concept. I mentioned two cloud computing concepts in the podcast – Google Apps, which I use for staff communication, and Scriblink, http://www.scriblink.com/, which I’m beginning to look at for sharing virtual whiteboards. Anyway, take a listen to the discussion and, as always, look out for the other fantastic podcasts from Teachnet on http://blog.teachnet.ie

Anseo Podcast: A Wish for Batt O’Keeffe

The second of our IPPN podcasts was nothing to do with technology, though it was mentioned by some of the principals insterviewed. Rozz asked several principals, if they had one wish for Batt O’Keeffe, what would it be? Take a listen to the podcast and see what you think.

Anseo Podcast: The Future of ICT in Education

Anseo.net bought a digital dictaphone and decided to go into the podcasting business. Our roving reporter, Rozz, took to the virtual airwaves for the first time at the Irish Primary Principals Network (IPPN) conference. She recorded a number of podcasts, which we’ll be uploading over the next while. Anseo.net would like to note that the opinions made in the podcast are not of the IPPN’s or (sometimes) Anseo.net. We’d like to thank all the willing interviewees for their time and we hope they enjoy listening to the sound of their own voices as much as we did!

In our first podcast, we ask principals, business people and educationalists what they think the next big thing in ICT in education will be.


Teachnet Podcast – Interactive Whiteboards

This week I was invited by Teachnet to record a podcast for their series on the topic of Interactive Whiteboards.  I have previously spoken about IWBs in my school on an earlier poscast with two other teachers but this time it was just me speaking about my own experiences and my own recommendations on IWBs.

In the podcast, I was asked about the different boards I have in my school, how teachers use them and the advantages and disadvantages of IWBs.  I was also asked about how I choose an IWB when buying and then I gave my top three recommendations.

One board, I completely forgot about was the Hitachi Starboard, which is another IWB I love, so my apologies for leaving it out!  There’s a new board on the scene, which I haven’t seen called the IQboard which also looks interesting so that may be one of my top tips at a future time.

Thanks to Pat and Michael for having me on their show for my third appearance.  If anyone wants to hear the 17 minutes or so of my chat with Michael, either head over to http://blog.teachnet.ie/?p=1612 or you can listen to the poscast here.

Teachnet Podcast #7 – Interactive Whiteboards

This week I was invited for the second time to speak on the Teachnet podcast station and the topic was Interactive Whiteboards. I’m fairly happy with what I had to say although I failed to mention many of the options by name except for Promethean and Smart.  I mentioned eBeam too.  However, I regret that I didn’t get to mention my favourite IWBs, which are less well known but excellent products.
