#TMETRU09 – catch up!

Monday, December 7th, 2009

If you missed last night’s Teachmeet EdTechRoundup, never fear! You can catch up by watching the archived stream.

The stream has been split into 12 parts – my bit is mostly at the end of episode 3 with a short bit (sadly cut short by being camelled) and follow on in episode 4 . I’ve embedded those episodes below – the rest can be found here. Well worth watching – loads of interesting presentations; something for everyone :o)

Twitter feed is here.
And Flickr photos of participants are here.

s talking postcards and talking photoalbums.
