4. Why do you want to be on EdTechTalk vs. any other place/hosting it yourself?

This is the space where we met We are part of the edtechtalk community. Edtechtalk has the infrastructure and platform to make our webcast effective, and y'all (ETT) need more elementary focus and penetration.

5. How does your show fit into the EdTechTalk and Worldbridges community? What will it contribute? What do you hope to gain from being a part of this community?

Here is the about page from our blog:



Our webcast focuses on policies and approaches for elementary teachers when they use technology in their classrooms. The discussion is lead by educators who are currently integrating technology in the elementary classroom, but still see themselves as part of the conversation in developing better ways for use of technology at the elementary school level. Our show has an open platform that allows for round table discussions so educators can participate in these conversations.

We see It's Elementary Webcast as contributing to our shared knowledge in the edupodosphere. We are going beyond the walls of our classrooms and connecting educators and their students with the edtech community.
