NASA DIY Podcasting
Technology must remain a tool for what we're doing. It cannot drive the engine!

The NASA Podcasting program I went to was supremely unhelpful because the presenter hadn't tested the software, wasn't prepared. I've got to remember that testing the waters myself first is important, not only to make sure I know what I'm doing, but also to make sure that I don't lose students from boredom.
Make sure that my content is driving my use of technology, not the other way around.

asynchronous mastery learning, students showing mastery in order to move on, changing the role of the teacher in the classroom, teaching students how to learn and access information.

Technology is the tool - Students are prosummers - let them be the creators - build purpose and autonomy. Create the new box, new practice over best practices - Mastery learning, teaching students how to learn and access information. The role of the teachers needs to change from instructor to facilitator.
