New videos and podcasts on review:ed

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 LinkedIn 0 0 Flares ×

Not surprisingly, I’m running behind posting my review:ed webcasts with Kirsten Winkler. In fact, we’re recording another in a couple of days. That being said, both of these, despite being “week-in-review” style shows, still have plenty of relevance and a fair preview of the show we’re doing Friday (they generally post on review:ed on Sunday and will usually be reposted here on the WizIQ blog and ZDNet no later than Monday). Have I mentioned, by the way, that I’m going to be a regular co-host on the program? I guess I better get on the ball re-posting, repurposing, and retweeting then.

Both posts hit on tablets and I have to admit that I’m eagerly anticipating Apple’s education announcement on the 19th; I’m afraid that eagerness reared its head on both of the shows below. Anyway, for the (almost) latest on ed tech in the news, check out the videos below or follow the links to download podcasts. Kirsten and I had every intention of keeping these a little shorter, but when you get the two of us talking shop, well, let’s just say that we have a lot to chat about. Enjoy and stop back soon or head over to Edukwest to hear more!
