Like everyone else in the known universe, I’m finishing up a grant application this weekend. I’m on the last piece, a two-page version of my curriculum vitae, and I’m citing URLs where audio of my recent presentations can be found. As I do so, I realize I need to bring audio from my February, 2007 keynote at the University of Maryland “Innovations in Teaching and Learning” conference over to my site (another good case for Jon Udell’s “hosted lifebits” idea). The good folks at Maryland have had my audio and slides up since I gave my talk there, and I’m grateful. But as Frost says, “way leads on to way,” and I can’t expect that URL to be a persistent URL (do folks still call them PURLs?), so I’ve just moved the audio over here (actually, recorded the stream off their site)–and now it’s a podcast: “Deschool, Reboot, Real School.” Here’s the PDF of my old-school PPT slides, too.
Many thanks, by the way, to the folks at Maryland. They were terrific hosts and I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to be among them.
