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!
