Teaching for the Future - Dr Scott McLeod interview


Dave LaMorte
who does a good podcast called Teaching for the Future has a recent episode with Dr. Scott McLeod whose work has been referenced here previously.

Dave and Scott discuss a posting that Scott made about some YouTube videos showing disturbing teacher-student interactions in the classroom that was captured by student cell phones.

They thoughtfully explore multiple aspects of this story, amongst them:
  • Once a video is posted of one of these incidents, what should you do?
  • What do you do to help avert these kinds of incidents?
  • Should cell phones be allowed in the classroom?

Well worth a listen. Click through to Scott's site to review his original posting.

With PodCamp Boston 3 on the horizon, this is the kind of stuff you can find amongst the podcampers. Dave and I worked together on the Welcome Desk for PodCamp Boston.

Are you going to be at PodCamp Boston 3?

It is a good reason to come to Boston in July!
