Why We Blog... Why we Podcast...


Here are a few great resources that answer in part why we Blog and Podcast in Room 208... and why this work is so important.

First, I will direct you to an incredible podcast that I listened to this morning. It is from David Warlick's podcast, featuring an incredible reflection from a principal in Georgia: Dr. Tim Tyson (here is his Blog). Dr. Tyson encourages his parents to read the book, The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman, and articulates in his interview with Warlick on how schools have changed from students being consumers of information to being Creators of Knowledge. An incredible podcast!

The second resource is from my podcast show, Bit By Bit (bobtaughtme.com/bitbybit). Listen to this show (http://www.bobtaughtme.com/bitbybit/podcast/bitbybit071305.mp3) to hear former Maine Governor, Angus King, talk more about Friedman's book, as well his arresting call for change in schools in order to prepare our students for this changing world.
