The Infinite Thinking Machine’s Video Podcast #4: Welcome to the Blogosphere includes a video segment my 8 year old son recorded with me on the Konza prairie near Manhattan, Kansas over Thanksgiving break. In it I reflect about how the information landscape of the 21st century is similar to the “wild west” of the North American continent, but how we should WANT our students to “leave trails” as evidences of their learning in the virtual world. The entire podcast is 8 minutes long, our segment begins at the 4:07 mark. What fun!
I created a WikiPedia article about the Konza prairie as a result of this “field trip.” How cool to see today that several others have further edited and contributed to the page.
Note my Kansas State shirt worn in the video segment– Go Cats!
