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

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.

Twitter – a tweet everyday.

As one of the regular contributors to Teachnet’s blogs, I thought I’d write about something a little different to my usual rantings about Interactive Whiteboards and Blogging.  I’ve been using a tool called Twitter for the last number of months and it’s really started to take off in a big way with other ICT-friendly teachers.  … Read more
