Welcome to episode 9 of the Technology Shopping Cart Podcast, a podcast (and now live webcast) where educational innovation thrives on the food of creative ideas. This episode features a conversation with Heather Chirtea of ToolFactory, Vicki Allen, Karen Montgomery, and Wesley Fryer about podcasting, digital storytelling, mobile podcasting labs, mobile flip video labs, "ushering" technologies which encourage teachers to extend their journeys of learning with educational technologies further, and "manifest destiny" for educational technology use in our 21st century classrooms. Of course we also include a variety of "geek of the week" websites, resources and tips, which includes a discussion of the superb "Global Nomads" videoconferencing content providers and facilitators. Check out the podcast shownotes for links. We are tentatively scheduling our next live webcast for Friday, September 26th, 2008 at 10 am US central time to discuss challenges and pitfalls of integrating web 2.0 technologies in school districts. We're asking some special guests from Missouri to join us who are in the trenches of IT and have some interesting perspectives to share.
