Rozz takes over the podcasting on Anseo.net with her first full podcast.

She also discusses the upcoming CESI conference. Finally, she bigs up our new site, Mash.ie. Have a listen now!
This month’s podcast is the second last one of the school year. Simon discusses the recent cuts in children’s education but attempts to lift the gloom by celebrating the great work done by teachers all over Ireland. The podcast goes through all the articles on Anseo.net this month.
At the Tipperary Institute of Technology, as well as giving the keynote talk, I also gave a workshop entitled: “Becoming a member of the Twitterati”, which brought participants through signing up to Twitter, writing a tweet, following people and getting following, marking favourites and finally some recommendations of Twitter users to follow. Below is the podcast – enjoy!
A few weeks ago, I was interviewed by Seán Delaney, the presenter of Inside Education, a radio programme on Dublin City FM. Seán came to visit the school I work in and we had a chat about how I use technology in the school, my ideas about how technology can enhance learning and a brief summary of my latest project, Mash.ie. Seán’s radio show is the only radio show about education in Ireland. Luckily for me, who doesn’t live in Dublin, Dublin City FM stream every programme over the Internet so anyone in the world can listen to the show. Unfortunately, when the programme was aired, I was in Rossport, Co. Mayo in my mother-in-law’s house where there is no Internet connection. Thankfully, Seán podcasts the programme on iTunes so when I got back to Carlow, I could download the show. You can tune into Inside Education every Sunday evening at 7:30pm on Dublin City FM or check out the podcasts on InsideEd.com
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
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.[audio:http://anseo.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/podcast02-a-wish-for-batt-o-keeffe-IPPN-2010.mp3|titles=podcast02-a wish for batt o keeffe IPPN 2010]
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.[display_podcast]
Anseo.net recently bought ourselves a digital dictaphone and our roving reporter Rozz is walking around the IPPN Expo asking teachers, principals, guests and businesses their thoughts on technology in primary education. We should have a nice podcast ready over the coming days so you can find out what the word on the ground really is!
