EdTechtalk: A New Education Community
Various online communities have been instrumental for me in the accumulation of new skill sets. As I continue to research the ed-tech space, it’s promising to see other communities emerging in such an important space. Recently I stumbled upon EdTechtalk. They are described as:
EdTechTalk is a community of educators interested in discussing and learning about the uses of educational technology. We webcast several live shows each week. During shows, listeners can use any common media player (i.e. Windows Media Player, Real Player, or iTunes) to listen to the discussion and use the chat room to make comments and ask questions.
I thought they did a nice job of summing up their purpose in a video you can watch here.
I’d recommend two options: 1. Get involved 2. Start your own local community
