ITEEA Conference / E2 Act

The ITEA just changed their name to the "International Technology and Engineering Educators Association." I'll be heading the the ITEEA conference in Charlotte, NC next week with a video camera and mic in hand. I'll be trying to talk to people to get some footage for some upcoming episodes. I have these topics in mind in particular: elementary education, sustainability, research, public policy, and other topics.

Also, be sure to check out the recent legislation introduced in the U.S. Congress: The Engineering Education (E2) for Innovation Act. This act would provide grants to states to further the study of engineering K-12. Search for the bill at:

By the way, the Gender Equity episode of the Podcast is the most popular so far! Thanks for watching and listening!

First Month Since Launch

I'm very pleased with the response since the Podcast launched in December. Thank you to all the Facebook fans and YouTube subscribers! I'm thinking I'd like to step up the production value a bit and include video guests, either via video I shoot or capture during a video conference. Also thinking about bringing along a camera to the ITEA conference in March to catch up with some of the profession's leaders and great thinkers, so if you'll be there and are interested in contributing, please be in touch!

Post Launch

Podcast launched on 10 December 2009 with first three episodes: Introduction, 21st Century Skills for the Workforce, and Technological Design. Added the fourth episode "Teaching & Learning" to the feed today. I'm very pleased so far with the reaction. Adding the feed stats with the YouTube views and download stats, it looks like a few hundred have viewed so far. Thanks for viewing, subscribing, and reading! Hoping people are thinking of lots of different ways to utilize this material...

Finished Editing...For Now...

Finally finished editing the material I've collected thus far. So, now I'll stop and turn some attention to trying to create some episodes. I think I've got enough to run with, but always concerned I don't have enough of the right material. So, I proceed with the thought that I may have to host a few more calls or interviews. Only one way to tell at this point...

Editing Anderson/Denton

Finished editing the interview with Ed Denton, ITEA prez, and Chris Anderson, NJTEA prez. Wasn't sure during the call how much usable stuff there would be, but was pleasantly surprised as I listened. Call with Ron Todd set for Tuesday and trying to pull a few more in.
