They are listed as 'podcasts'at http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pQfCyc8uaMp89SusfPcznEg though no RSS feed is evident

I have taken the information there and hyperlinked it and placed it here for convenience in retrieving the recordings.


Name Abstract Audio
Levine Communication evolved from Lascaux drawings to text and back to images again (but much better resolution! and with Creative Commons!). Come explore concepts of Web 2.0 Storytelling (http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com/50+Ways) and engage in some creative activities to get you thinking visually by telling a story in images only. We will see what we can create as stories from a collection of photos that conference participants submitted ahead of time and examine the processes that go into the decision making... and perhaps play a round of 5 Card Nancy. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/203, session 1.mix.mp3
Crosby See example after example of how my students use Skype to connect to the world and learning in Language Arts, Science, Geography, and more, and win awards along the way! http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/403, session 1.mix.mp3
Jakes Humans are anatomically built to process visually. With that in mind, how can educators take advantage of the explosion of user-created visual content, the Web's enormous capacity to distribute that content in multiple formats, and the high level of engagement that occurs when visual content is used in instruction? This session explores a framework for understanding the process of helping students become more visually literate, and identifies the strategies and tools to do so. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/306, session 1.mix.mp3
Larson What are the benefits (and pitfalls) of acting out the writer's process on a blog? A blog can build confidence, encourage dialog, impart authenticity, and open up differentiation in a classroom writers' community. This session will be about the nuts and bolts of blogging, along with a dialog about how we do more with this technology. David Larson is a middle school Humanities teacher and educational technologist at Concordia International School Shanghai. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/304, session 2.mix.mp3

Cofino Now that you've signed up for the Learning 2.008 Ning, would you like to learn how to use this (and other) social networking tool(s) in your classroom? Social Networks (like Ning) are a great way to: engage learners, empower all students, enhance dialogue and discussion, connect with classrooms around the school or around the world, promote and share multimedia hassle-free, differentiate by ability level and interest, and enable learners to be leaders in a truly collaborative environment. Find out how social networks are being used in classrooms at all grade levels (from second grade to twelfth grade) to create globally collaborative projects, engage students at the appropriate learning level, and enhance curricular conversations outside the classroom. Rationale, online safety, planning process and classroom social networking examples and resources will be shared. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/403, session 2.mix.mp3

McMahon Members of senior management teams, IT coordinators and members of IT committees in schools will know just how hard it is to connect together students, teachers, parents, administration on a single campus of a reasonably sized school. Imagine trying to connect together 17 schools and an administrative center with a student population of potentially 15,000 and have them all able to access services such as shared calendars, appropriate demographics and access to Assessment, Reporting and Recording for the diverse needs of IB World Schools, based on their roles! This is clearly a ground-breaking project and is as challenging as realizing its potential is exciting. This session will feature teacher and Project Manager, Paul Chillingworth as well as well as Business Analyst Ross Parker, who also represents the client, the English Schools Foundation, speaking about working with Asia’s biggest online learning company, Broadlearning, to bring the project to fruition. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/203 session 2.mix.mp3

Cofino Ready to "flatten" your classroom walls? Looking to take web 2.0 tools to the next level by developing exciting and authentic projects that allow your students to interact with partners around the world? It may be time to tackle a globally collaborative project in your classroom! Globally collaborative projects are an exciting way to engage your students in authentic and meaningful learning across cultures and continents. Successfully combining a variety of web 2.0 tools (like blogs, wikis, Skype, social networks, etc) can remove the barriers of time and distance to connect your class with others around the world. Not only do students love to meet their far-flung peers, but learning to collaborate and create in an entirely online and inter-cultural environment will clearly be a critical skill for their future. Learn how to develop a successful global project - from design and planning to implementation and product, as well as see examples of engaging projects from all grade levels. Tips for success based on learning experiences from past global collaborations, along with resources and samples of current globally collaborative projects will be shared. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/404, session 3.mix.mp3
Heikkila Cell Phones, iPods, Wikipedia, and more, are you fed up with disruptive technology students bring to school, or try to use? These technologies can also offer valuable teaching moments, innovative ways to do traditional tasks, and provide opportunities for assistive technology. How about learning to judge veracity of websites, making custom flashcards, taking notes, recording fieldtrips, and creating student organizers. Attendees will get ideas for the classroom, infusion ideas, and resources. This presentation will also provide an overview of current literature on the topics of integration of “disruptive” technologies. Laurie Heikkila, former classroom teacher and international workshop leader, will share her experience and enthusiasm as she leads you through this “hot” topic. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/403, session 3-1.mix.mp3

Warlick If the institution of education is to retool for this time of rapid change, then it must reexamine itself through new lenses. Three disruptive conditions are converging today on every classroom, teacher, and learner, and each one holds in its realization the clues for 21st century learning lifestyles. This is a more formal "big-picture" presentation that seeks to factor down the issues that we are all grappling with, as education reformers, into three clear and indisputable converging conditions. I'll be delivering a version of this address at NECC in San Antonio as a spotlight session. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/204, session 6.mix.mp3

Suitable for Primary and Secondary educators. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/Sound%201-0919.mix.mp3
Fisher Kids today are different. Period. But just how different are they? There have been many theories about immigrants and natives, about Google making us stupid and about how students don't even know how to read anymore. Is this true? Is any of it true? What kinds of classrooms are kid friendly? How can we organize learning spaces and places to promote the kinds of learners we want our students to become? http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/203, session 8.mix.mp3
Jakes You've started using the process of digital storytelling with kids. You've had success. But what's next, and how can you grow your use, or your program? This session explores the new tools, the new media, and the new networks of digital storytelling that will enable students to further extend their voice, develop their message, and engage in a lifetime of creation and contribution. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/204, session 8.mix.mp3
McIntosh ADOPTION STRATEGIES FOR NEW MEDIA in EDUCATION Ewan was part of a team in East Lothian, Scotland, who have created a long-term, coherent and collaborative network of educators and learners, using a blog platform and other new media to share practice with each other and with parents. In this workshop, we will look at the main success criteria of this project and others where large-scale adoption of new tools and, vitally, new ways of teaching and learning have occurred... and lasted. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Friday.mix/403, session 12.mix.mp3

Hardman In all of our schools there are students have skills or the passion (or both) to be both co-creators of your school technology infrastructure and support systems. Schools are communities full of potential for real projects (web applications) that can be tackled by students. These are rich and authentic experiences that have a positive impact in not just tech skills but leadership, character development and collaborative skills. This session will talk about how to select projects, how to manage student teams and make the work they create a sustainable part of your schools systems. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/203, session 11.mix.mp3
Seigal Educators in China and developing countries hear about Web 2.0 and Learning 2.0 all the time, but those of us living in bandwidth challenged environments feel left out. How can we make use of social book marking, social networks, podcasting, streaming video and digital collaborative learning when we are held back by poor Internet connections, government filtering and administrators or network managers who don't yet get it? Solutions to explore include Drupal, Moodle and Wordpress on local servers, VPN, Google Apps on your domain, Sharepoint services, Evernote, Adobe Air, Silverlight and even IMAP E-mail.

Apel International schools aren’t weighed down by the burdens of No Child Left Behind. We have the freedom to collect and analyze whatever student data we feel is appropriate. Are teachers in your school using data in meaningful ways to improve learning? At AES, we’ve generated a culture of data analysis. I’ll share some of our successes and demonstrate the technological tools we use for creating meaningful information. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/204, session 9.mix.mp3
Statham ICT may have changed the way students learn but public examinations and assessment methods have changed little since they were first used in China 2000 years ago. With the aid of technology, students are now able to acquire knowledge and skills independently, beyond the boundaries set by the examiners. This workshop will look at whether examinations promote independent learning, calling on the experiences of the audience and with a particular emphasis on a new qualification being developed in Hong Kong. Designed to encourage students to direct their own learning and break the shackles imposed by syllabuses and schemes of work, changing the role of a teacher to that of a genuine facilitator. The workshop will have discussion and a practical exercise. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/306, session 12.mix.mp3
Agnew Annie Agnew, Director for ICT at Canberra Grammar, has initiated several unique global collaboration project which brought together learning communities from around the world. Using Learning Management System, Studywiz, drama students from Canberra Grammar School in Australia and students from New York have worked together on several projects; based on the viewing of films. Student have been involved in online discussions, chats, and video blogs to share their ideas, and have created a dramatic response to the films they viewed. They then shared these videos online, which enabled students from each school to watch the productions and discuss their work. The project provided a great opportunity not only for collaboration but gave the students a real audience for their work globally and, most importantly, encouraged cross-cultural discussion and sharing of different perspectives. Annie shares how she has set up and managed these global projects, and the amazing results for the teachers and students involved. http://scis.s3.amazonaws.com/Saturday.mix/203, session 12.mix.mp3
