On the 24th of May I received a text message from the Leo Laporte of Irish podcasting, Bernie Goldbach, who is amongst other things, a lecture in computing and multimedia at Sligo IT. Bernie is a tireless proponent of Irish podcasting scene, so Francis McGillicuddy and I hopped along to the Clarence Hotel on his invitation, having no idea what we were meeting about, but certain it would be something interesting.
It turned out Bernie was soliciting contributions from a variety of Irish Podcasters to his address to the EdTech 2006 conference.
We all duly contributed, and the result became Sound Education in Practise, and audio visual presentation, which Bernie presented to the conference [link to podcast], and which he intends to use as a resource for future addresses.
Our contribution was a short discussion [ video | audio | notes ], in which we discussed a variety of topics relating to the pedagogic utility of podcasting.
