Hello. Welcome to episode #19 of Speaking of History. This show is a review of my classroom technology goals for the 2005 / 2006 school year. I listed these goals in August of last year in episode #5. I have done a pretty good job so far this year of reaching my goals - a little bit yet to be desired. I have not created the local history video show that I would like to show on local cable but that has been due in part to spending so much time podcasting. I also discuss a couple of articles which have appeared lately and the news that I am a finalist for the 2006 Cable's Leaders in Learning Award through Cable in the Classroom. I wrap up with a list of local historical sites that I plan to visit sometime this spring and summer. If this is your first show check out a couple of other ones since the format is always a little different.
If you have any questions or comments please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
