Several months ago I received an email from Robyn MacBride. She teaches physics in Rochester NY and is finishing her Masters degree in educational technology. She's writing her thesis on how blogs can be used as an educational tool and asked me if I'd be willing to be interviewed by her. I said yes and about two weeks ago, January 10, 2006, we did a skyperview. I asked Robyn if it would be alright to record the interview and publish it as a podcast. She said yes.
In the interview we explore the role of blogs in the past, present and future in my classes. We also discussed issues of internet safety, how I dealt with a student publishing inappropriate content, connectivism, and some of my perspectives on education in general.
It's about an hour long. I know I don't always have that much time to devote to listening to a podcast but if you do find the time to listen questions, concerns, complaints, comments, compliments, confusions, uncertainties and other perspectives are encouraged and welcomed; as always. ;-)
