The show notes for this podcast included:

"I'm at the North Carolina educational Technology Conference (NCETC) in Greensboro, North Carolina, and very excited to be here. This is one of the high points of the year for technology educators in this state, when we get together and share what we’re learning about new technologies, and how we are implementing them in our classrooms. We’re going to hear it again and again, that we should be integrating technology, and I’m going to keep beating my drum that its about integrating a new literacy, but all that aside, it is invigorating to be with so many very smart people in my state who are thinking forward, and getting together to talk about it."

"Yesterday, I had the opportunity to work with about 20 outstanding educators. I knew up front these people would be special, because of all of the cleverly worded workshop titles they had to choose from, they came to one called “An Educator’s Guide to Web 2.0?. We explored blogging, wikis, social bookmarks, RSS, and spent some time with Technorati and Blogpulse to explore this emerging idea of conversation as content. At the end of a very strenuous workshop, we had a 40 minute conversation, which I recorded — and will share with you."

Best regards,
