I am going to be presenting up in the Bay Area at the FETC/CUE conferencethis fall. My seminar is called “Podcasting with 50 Middle Schoolers – Are You Crazy?!” Six years ago I went to CUE for the first time on the lower tier of the tech savvy ladder. There, I was inspired.
I took what I learned there, left with the fairy dust of “What-if?” and created Bulldog Radio, a student-created, written, performed, edited, produced, published, and publicized radio network. I say network because the students, in fact, produce 3 different shows: The Daily Bulldog with School News, Globetrotting World News, and Teen Talk. I am excited to bring my ed tech interests up north.
Handouts will, of course, be available online at both the CUE website and www.tweenteacher.com.
