Podcast interview at PodCamp AZ 2011

This weekend I attended my second PodCamp AZ (known as the "relevent Media Unconference") and presented a session titled: "Educational Apps: How to Make Teachers and Learners Happy". While I don't have a video record of that session, you can see an on-air interview I did with Cj Feierabend and Scott Josephson where we talked about Educational Technology.

If you ever get the opportunity to attend a TED conference, do it.
You can view the whole program here:

Start with Alan November and work your way from there...

Add to the vibe of engaged attendees and guru presenters was the awe of being 44 floors above Ground Zero, in the throes of reconstruction...

kinstant.com - Better Web Browsing for Kindle 3

I had been following the blog of Laura and Russ (The Path Less Pedaled) and was fascinated to hear them describe how they used Google Maps on their 3G Kindle while completing their west coast bike trip.
This got me thinking about how educators can harness the power of Kindles as a classroom tool, especially when tablets like the iPad are cost-prohibitive. Upon doing a little more research, I discovered Kinstant:
