I'm basically just testing here, curious about Anchor for sure (was it USD 150 million Spotify paid?) but this is the deal: my focus is broadly on learning, education and technology; some episodes are one-on-one interviews.
It's been ages - more than a year, I believe, while I've been working at a constantly changing building site with no chance to stream or podcast! - but now is definitely time to relaunch. We're not in the best of times anywhere on the globe and that's why it's even more important to connect with other educators and friends.
This was also my first try using StreamYard to live stream through YouTube; this podcast episode is the audio version of the live stream. StreamYard is very easy to get started with and it worked fine, even though I still lack a wired Internet connection. The free alternative should also be generous enough for most (non-pro) streamers.
It was great to see Alastair smiling by the way, even though it might have been brief; not always easy to keep a positive tone these days. One thing is for sure though - meeting with friends does you plenty of good. I'm looking forward to the next one!
[This is a repost from 2014! No EdReach network any more, for one thing.. but Zack is still going strong :) The original blog post about this episode is available here]
I made it, at last – I managed to get Zack Gilbert in the show! If you’re interested in using games in education, you probably already know who Zack is but, in the unlikely case you don’t, this is a unique opportunity to get your bearings right. Zack and his colleague Gerry James have a great podcast titled EdGamer on the EdReach network and there’s always great content there so hurry and subscribe if you haven’t already done that!
