Listened Teachers have a duty to share their great ideas
Scotland’s most prolific teacher vlogger gives his tips for creating content – and calls for all teachers to share their practice ‘more freely’

Henry Hepburn, @Henry_Hepburn & Emma Seith, @Emma_Seith interview Blair Minchin (@Mr_Minchin). Interesting opinions on sharing, returning to school during covid and more. I imagine Blair’s class go home exhausted every day.

Listened IndieWeb Podcast Episode 15 by David ShanskeDavid Shanske
After a gap of over a year, we resumed our IndieWeb podcast and got together to discuss what has been going on, how we have been building the community during the pandemic, and about our topic of micro.blog. There is also a video attached this time.

Enjoyed listening to this. Getting a take on micro.blog from the IndieWeb point of view was interesting. As usual listening makes me think I should dig into the IndieWeb a bit more and get this blog working the way I want.

Replied to [rant] I hate podcasts by Nitin Khanna
Ok, listen up. Podcasts are stupid. I’ve got good reasons too, if you read on. There are two types of blog posts – ramblers (like this one) and informative. That’s generally what you’ll see on the Internet. Most personal content is a rambler type of blog post. It may be the most succinct two...

There is a lot to agree with here. I’ve been guilty of creating podcast with all your worst nightmares, skype, rambling and more.

But I love podcasts. Two main reasons, one the sound of voices is different, for me, than reading a post; two, I can listen to podcasts while driving to work. I don’t want succinct  information, I want to be able to do the equivalent of rambling for listening, picking up bits and pieces, thinking of something else, paying attention to the traffic.

I remember when I started podcasting there was a txt file going round that explained, by example, how much better plain text was. That is fine if you can look at it, not so much if you are washing the dishes:-)

Enjoyed the rant!
