As you can see from the posted picture I am currently sitting on my car on the Internet waiting for Burt and John to log in for the fifth episode of the Ed Tech Classroom Podcast. Why am I sitting in my car? Well, this Thursday we attempted to have AT&T U-verse installed at our house. A technician was there all day Thursday, all day Friday, and now all day Saturday. From what I can gather our house and neighborhood networks are working fine, but AT&T can’t switch our services at their main switching station. All I know is that I didn’t have a stable network connection at home, so I am sitting in the parking lot in front of the neighborhood Starbucks. Using their network and my T-Mobile account I will be able to podcast with Burt and John about 1:1 laptop programs.
As I have been sitting here in the car, I’ve been digging through my Google Reader unread posts and learned about another innovative up-and-coming podcast, Cell Phone Live Radio. Liz Kolb, an advocate for using cell phones as a learning tool in the classroom is creating her own live radio talk show/podcast all about using these ubiquitous devices in education. Take a moment to listen to her ideas. They’re always fascinating and innovative. I even learned something just by finding out what product she was using to create her episodes, Blog Talk Radio. This might be something Burt and I have to check out in the future.
