You’re invited to join in the conversation this evening at 9 pm US Eastern time (8 pm Central) on the Teachers Teaching Teachers channel of EdTechTalk, discussing (among other things I’m sure) the ideas raised in last Saturday’s ITM blog post, “A Quest for NetFlix Plus Functionality for Books – for Young Readers!” as well as the comments shared by others. For folks outside the U.S. this is 01:00 UTC Thursday.
Thanks to Susan Ettenheim, Joyce Valenza, and Paul Allison for sparking and encouraging this conversation! I finally (I know I’m slow) listened to the K12Online07 presentation “EdTechTalk: A Network of Homegrown Webcasters” this morning driving into work, and I have a feeling this dynamic and passionate group of educators (who comprise the growing EdTechTalk community) may entice me to become a webcaster myself before long. 🙂
If you’ve used or have opinions about Shelfari, Goodreads, LibraryThing, or other social networking book websites for adults – and think the functionality offered by these sites holds great promise for student READING and LITERACY, please join us tonight on EdTechTalk at 9 pm Eastern / 8 pm Central! If you miss the conversation live it will be archived, of course, but it’s so much more fun and engaging to tune in live!
