While you are there, be sure to check out some of the other great podcast episodes. Here is a description of their show:
“Generative Technology,” or GenTech, is a term we’re using to describe tools that allow for student-created content. GenTech includes computer-based tools like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker as well as Web2.0 software like Writely, Empressr, or gliffy. Think of it as the alternative to traditional educational software in which students are tested against a correct answer or made to practice a single skill over and over – also called “drill and kill” software.
The GenTech podcast is a weekly conversation about a particular tool or trend, and how it can be used educationally. For each topic, we’ll feature a definition, examples, and a roundtable discussion.
On the show, they share some great cutting-edge ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom.
