Dr. Z and Prof M spend some time talking about copyright and creative commons. This is an important topic because you will be responsibile for citing your materials for your final project. It will be best for you to look for material that is licenced through Creative Commons. Don't know what that is? Experience this podcast.
This podcast is supported by the EIT RWLD. This is a source where you can find docouments, videos, podcasts and overall information about how you can be legal when you do multimedia work.
This podcast is a unique presentation because they decided to create an "enhanced podcast." As discussed earlier in the class, an enhanced podcast includes an audio track but it is enhanced by still visuals. It is primarily a Slideshow presentation. On second thought, this might be more of a screencast because it includes a video and an online tutorial in how to search for creative commons resources using Google and Flickr.
This podcast is another leap into the possible technology for education. It is a vodcast. This is a video recording of Dr. Z and Prof M having a Skype discussion. We used Call Recorder (eCamm) to record this interaction. We used iMovie to edit the final product.
Dr. Z reviewed the RWLD for the week and Prof M reviewed his present projects and future projects.
NOTE: It might be noted that this entry is different than the other Episode #3 because it will be downloaded to your computer before you can watch it. That way it can be in a .mov format so iTunes will recognize it. The other Episode #3 is set up to stream so it is in Flash format. iTunes apparently doesn't know how to work with Flash and therefore doesn't show the posting.
Dr. Z and Prof. M discuss their classes' success so far.
They discuss the way the courses are created to provide practical applications of the 5 domains that they are learning. While some students are saying that they already know the technical skills they are learning, it should be noted that this program is about process more than technical skills. These projects are designed to build collaboration within their Distributed Learning Community.
Dr. Z finished by introducing the Iowa Technology and Education Connection (ITEC) organization in Iowa. This is an 800-member organization in Iowa that supports educators' technology use.
ITEC's annual conference will be October 14-16 in Des Moines at the Iowa Events Center.
Keynotes will be David Pogue and Marco Torres. http://www.itec-ia.org/en/conference
BTW if you would like to share what you are doing in your classrooms with other educators, proposals to present at ITEC 2012 are open until June 22.
BTW2 - These are called "show notes." They provide additional information for listeners.
