Kathy Schrock Interview! Episode 4!!!

It was my extreme pleasure on July 26 to present a full-day workshop for teachers at Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison New Jersey, an offering of the Grace M. Hopper Teacher Institute. Famed educational technology pioneer Kathy Schrock was the other featured presenter, and Kathy agreed to be the focus of an S4theB ("Snacks4theBrain," of course!)interview geared toward sharing some of her expertise and a smidgin of her vast online resources with science teachers. Her interview, conducted asynchronously via email and sound attachments, comprises our show number 4. Download the show here! View a flickr photo set from the workshop here. To augment the whole experience (mustn't ignore alternative learning styles!), below are links to the sites Kathy discusses in the show, as well as a link (mentioned early on) to my Desktop Interactive Videoconferencing blog: Google Advanced Search Page AltaVista Advanced Search Page Google News DiscoverySchool: Lesson Plans ScienceNet Links: Lesson Plans North Harris College (TX): Science Animations, Movies, and Interactive Tutorial Links Physlets Blue Web’n: Science Tutorials How Stuff Works Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators: Science Links Scott's Desktop IVC site
