As most of you know, I've been co-hosting the weekly review:ed webcasts with Kirsten Winkler since the end of 2011. They're a lot of fun and I've had a chance to meet some very interesting folks involved in the business of education. The good folks at Edukwest, though, have asked me to host my own show highlighting K12 tools, technologies, and ideas.
Called C12 (get it, like K12 only C12 since my name is Chris...my producer is remarkably clever), the new show will consist of short segments that can be easily viewed in bite-sized chunks, shared with colleagues, and hopefully prove useful for teachers, educators, administrators, and even students looking for useful insights or interesting new tools with immediate application in the classroom. While all of the episodes will be available on Edukwest, I'll be picking some of my favorite segments and cross-posting them here, writing up stories about them, and reposting the aggregated episodes on a special ZDNet page.
For last week's episode, I have to call out my interview with San Kim, founder of Showme. We talk about his company's interactive iPad application, which has quickly become a favorite of mine.
Check back for more interesting segments and interviews (this week, Richard Byrne of freetech4teachers joins me to talk about his pick for the tool of the week) and share your suggestions for webcast topics in the talkbacks.
