Cooperate Catalyst – First podcast

We have decided in another post that we can use Voicethread to gather the audio for our first podcast. This has the advantage of being asynchronous, so that we don’t all have to be present at the same time to comment. Unfortunately it will also be less of a discussion, so really this is just a test for now to see if this system will work.

Go to this Voicethread and comment:

Let’s see if this system works. We’ve had the thought of chatting via Skype, but that may require too much editing of the audio afterward. For now, what is important that we find ways to communicate with each other via audio and then turn these into engaging podcasts.

About David Wees

David Wees is a Canadian teacher with 7 years international experience. He started his career in inner city NYC in a failing school. He met his wife in the spring of 2005 and together they moved to London, England where David taught in a small private school which was David’s first exposure to the International Baccalaureate curriculum. London was too expensive, even compared to NYC, so after 2 more years they moved on to Bangkok, Thailand where David taught for 2 years. David has co-authored a textbook for IB Mathematics, and has his Masters degree in Educational Technology. He is now in Vancouver, Canada, working as a learning specialist in technology.

  2. It doesn’t look this way of collecting audio for our podcast series is going to work. I think it would be better to try and schedule some sort of regular Skype conversation. We’d have to play around with the audio, but an actual conversation I think would be both more interesting and more useful.

    Anyone have thoughts about how we can schedule this?
