I Have a Question
Overcoming Teachers' Initial Barriers to Change
April 13, 2014
From Carla Arena: " I'm always interested in how we motivate educators to overcome their initial barriers to change. I've had some clues from this past decade working with very inspiring educators, but we can always learn from others and their own strategies."

While the EdTechWeekly Show has been 'on hiatus' for quite a while, our skype group chat has remained active. Yesterday Dave posted...
On this episode of TTT we celebrate Open Education Week 2014 http://www.openeducationweek.org/ with:
We talk about open learning and open educational resources in K-12 education. We discuss the benefits and challenges of open resources, such as the new K-12 OER Community of Practice, http://www.k12opened.com/community/ and how online spaces like this and others might be used to support educators in opening up their practice.
As an experiment, I've created an iTunes enhanced AAC version of the plain old Live From the Formosa Tea House, Session Five, that contains chapter markers, images and links to websites we mention. Here's what it looks like:
Because of the AAC encoding, and the embedded images and links, this is a much larger file than the regular MP3 version (32MB vs. 12MB). But it also sounds a lot better. Feedback welcome on whether this is worth it.
We recorded Live From the Formosa Tea House: Session Five this afternoon over lunch.
The focus of this episode was on Zap Your PRAM 3, the next incarnation of the Zap Your PRAM conference we organized in the fall of 2003. Zap3 is running February 16 to 19, 2006 in Cavendish, PEI; details forthcoming shortly on the new Zap3site.
There is, alas, an annoying bit of electrical interference that runs throughout the episode -- it's most noticeable at the beginning. I tried various methods for filtering it out, but they all made Dan, Steven and I sound like drunken fish. Here's a rundown of what you'll hear:
Stay tuned for more Live From the Formosa Tea House; in the meantime I'm just claiming the podcast feed by sticking this link in: My Odeo Channel. Go on about your business.
Like all other things web, it's deceptively hard to come up with realistic numbers for "readership" or "listenership." Web requests can come from too many places, in too many guises, to each be dependably tied to a real person.
That said, we can get a vague idea of the "listenership" of Live From the Formosa Tea House by looking at the number of times the MP3 audio files have been downloaded. This doesn't mean they've been listened to, of course, but it's better than nothing.
So here are the episode statistics, covering downloads from September 27, 2004 to the present:
We recorded in the coveted back room of the Formosa, with a very simple technical setup. We all sat around Dan James' APEX435 microphone, which ran into Steven Garrity's Behringer Eurotrack UB802 mixer. We took the output of the mixer and plugged it into my iMic, which was plugged into a USB port on my laptop. I did the recording in Sound Studio, saved as an AIFF file, then imported the file into iTunes and converted to an MP3 (24 kbps mono, VBR medium quality).
This episode runs one and a half hours. It didn't feel "too long" when we were recording it, so we've decided to release it completely unedited to maintain the "three guys having lunch" feel. It may feel too long to listen to. Things we discuss:
You can subscribe to the Live from the Formosa Tea House RSS feed if you want to become a regular listener. We're also in the iTunes 4.9 podcast directory -- just search for Formosa.
