Who doesn’t love a Winter Break? Give us all time to relax and pause for a moment and energize for the second half of the year. In my family, we just stayed in Austin and maxed and relaxed. We didn’t go and visit anyone, no one came to visit us, just did what we wanted to do. I wanted to get some things done that I couldn’t normally do while school was going on so I decided to start a podcast. I had been shaping what I would say in my podcast, names, hosting sites, all that jazz before break started. With the help of @classroom_tech and @marniemoose, we decided on the title of Techlandia. My partner in crime would be @tedrosececi, who, I am sure, didn’t know what she was getting herself into. We decided on a format and just decided to keep it simple. Three apps, three people we love on Twitter, and things we enjoy at the time. We also leave ourselves room to vent a little at the end, and there you go! Podcast! It has been so much more fun than I thought it would be. We are on even on New & Noteworthy in the iTunes store! (you have to dig, education-scroll down on the bottom right-click educational technology- but we are there) We even got permission from Washed Out to use the Portlandia theme song as our music for the rest of our episodes this year. So if you have a chance, start a podcast, it isn’t as hard as you think. Once things are set up, you are golden! If you have any of the technical questions, I am happy to answer to the best of my limited abilities.
We also feature a Zeen magazine that has ALL THE LINKS to what we talk about on that page. You don’t even need to jot stuff down, we have that covered for you. If you have any suggestions we even use the app Answer Underground for a question and answer forum. Just download the app and search for Techlandia Podcast Question Group. We may even have in the works a LIVE podcast from the Answer Underground booth at FETC on January 29!!
First #eduwin of hopefully MANY to come in 2013!!
