              Greetings Everyone,


              We added some special radio broadcasts shows from the WI EdTech Conference known as WEMTA this week.  These are in addition to our regular "first Friday of the month radio broadcast shows" at 9AM CST. These live recordings took place at the beautiful Kalahari Resort in WI Dells, WI.


              We captured this venue with many EdTech and Librarian leaders from WI, IA, MN and IL as the conference took place. There are eight archived recordings that you can listen to, to gain new ideas and insights for PD, apps, collaboration, and sharing of resources with district members.


              Enjoy!    http://www.spreaker.com/show/the_digital_buzz_3


              • Re: The Digital Buzz Radio Talk Show- Primary Student Focus




                We've added a new radio talk show from Intel Teachers Engage "The Digital Buzz" for the month of April.  This radio talk show is focused on primary student projects, digital storytelling and teaching strategies that are working well in the elementary classroom.  Tim Nielsen is our first grade grade that was interviewed from Holmen Prairieview Elementary.  Our live on location took place at the local Blue Cup Coffee House, which is a local hangout of many of our educators in the area. Some educators meet at this same location as part of their afterschool learning day to share technology best practices, share out of apps and converse as an edtech support group to improve their instructional approaches and delivery with their students.

                • Re: The Digital Buzz Radio Talk Show- Live from 2012 Tech Forum

                  This month's interview was with Rick Herrmann, Intel’s US Sector Public Manager, who was presenting at this 2012 Tech & Learning Conference. Rick presented at this event on the latest technology innovations that Intel has to offer and the dynamic K12 Blueprint.


                  I stole some time away during the morning keynote to meet with him by 9AM near the Starbucks coffeshop within the hotel to broadcast the radio show. Lots of activity was taking place at this Tech & Learning Forum, and it was difficult to find a quiet corner and to ensure that we would have adequate Internet connectivity- but we made it work.  So during the broadcast you will be hearing many passerby’s, background hotel music and spurts of laughter and conversations from attendees.  I really like this “realism” to the radio broadcast as it is authentic and never scripted from a public venue.



                  Rick’s radio interview was extremely intriguing as we discussed emerging technology conversations topics before the actually live broadcast- to prepare our workflow of content. Rick was so at ease as he discussed several topics relating to k12 technology education. The trending topics we covered included BYOD, the importance of teacher professional development, equity and access to resources and tools for our students and educators, student social fluency skills to prepare them for a global competitive society, and the latest and greatest emerging technologies on the horizon. 

                  The indepth responses Rick provided to questions I posed for him showcased his global expertise and worldwide interactions and initiatives with individuals in k12schools, business sectors and higher-ed institutions.  I was especially intrigued with Rick’s foresight and guidance of shared strategies and solutions of how to prepare our students for our future. His message also focused on the importance of 21st century skills and fluency experiences students she be immersed in that infuse collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, self-directed learning, equity and access to resources and tools, and reflection on lessons learned. These key learning opportunities are essential to student success and engagement to leverage their own personal learning and the environments they learn within.


                  This was one of those interviews that inspired me to really reflect on the learning process of the content of the overall message.  It was thought provoking and provided reassurance that we as educational technology leaders can and will make a difference with our educators and students if we too- continue to follow our passions of edtech leadership, modeling of best practices of 21century skills and fluencies and allow for creativity to empower our own learning.  Thank you Rick for making a difference in my edtech world and allowing for me to interview you – where in return I can share your global message with our radio audience on The Digital Buzzmultiple PLN’s and on my personal blog, and our Intel Teachers Engage  Online Community.
