EdTech Podcast #1: The Human-Technology Ecosystem

Hi Everyone,

Brian Young & I put together a podcast aimed at exploring technology in education. We hope to go beyond the obvious and into the essence of the relationship between technology in education, it’s meaning and how we can inform our practice. We don’t claim to have all the answers in fact we have questions. Our conversation is meant to be an exploration of a topic and not a definitive answer or solution. We hope the podcast stirs conversation amongst our community.

In our initial episode we talk about the Human Technology Ecosystem. I’m referring to the interaction that occurs when human beings use technology to express themselves and to communicate with others. This interaction is twofold: Between people with technology serving as the medium, or part of the medium for discourse, and between people and the technology they are using. In all instances each component, as well as other components that are situation dependent, is needed to make possible and sustain the other. We touch on topics such as augmented reality, Second Life, Clickers, Facebook, & Twitter.

We hope to make this a semi-regular podcast (perhaps weekly?) and would like your feedback. Thanks.

    Well done, gentlemen. Informative, but still with an approachable tone. I especially enjoyed Brian’s comparison of profile building with facebook and identity building in SL- powerful and clear.

  1. Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the nice feedback. I thought that part was well done by Brian as well.

    Take care,
    Jeff
