This podcast includes a series of three interviews from the Learning@School 2009 conference in Rotorua, New Zealand. The first is an interview with Dean McDonnell, a school principal near Matamata. One of the families whose children attend at Dean’s school own the farm where Hobbiton was built for the film trilogy The Lord of the Rings. He has actually gone duck hunting there! Two new movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s book “The Hobbit” are in production now and scheduled for worldwide release in December 2011 and December 2012. See the WikiPedia link in the podcast shownotes for more details. The final interview is with a Panasonic representative about their worldwide digital storytelling contest “Kid Witness News.”
