This podcast is a keynote address I shared on December 12, 2007, with teachers at the Good Shephard Episcopal School in Dallas, Texas, over skype as a videoconference to kick off a day of professional development focused on distance learning. We discussed the ways audio recording and podcasting technologies can be viewed as disruptive and threatening to teachers and professors, and the ways these and other technologies can be leveraged to enhance learning opportunities. We discussed analogies between cooking and teaching, including the “Ratatouille Effect” (everyone can learn) as well as the lesson from Ratatouille about the need to start with the best ingredients when cooking. We wrapped up sharing our perceptions of the most powerful ingredients for digitally enhanced and engaging learning. Mine (linked in our notes from the session’s brainstorming sessions) are social bookmarks, Flickr, VoiceThread, and Skype.
