A number of people have asked if the video that was shown at the Intel keynote is available online, so here are some links: Flash 6, Windows Media, and a smaller version of Quick Time.
Here’s the link to the original .mov file in case those others get taken down. Be advised it’s a .mov file that requires the latest version of QuickTime (free) and is a whopping 27 meg (though in these days of fast connections that may not be as whopping…) To me at least, it’s an amazing couple of minutes, and I really can’t articulate how lucky I feel to have been the subject of all of this. But it gives an absolutely great overview of what Weblogs have meant at our school. If you take the time, please let me know what you think.

Very impressive Will. I’d love to do what you do, and I am beginning to move towards it.

This was a nicely done video for sure. I’d love to see something similar exploring some of the uses for weblogs in the elementary grade levels. I have seen the teachers.tv video which was very good as well.
For me these sorts of videos give some good ideas for those of us who are trying to implement weblogs. And they seem especially useful in sharing with a colleague or administrator who may be new to the whole subject.

Sorry, had a bad link, double posted it. Should be fixed now. 🙂

I agree with the above Will. This is the sort of thing that is useful in promoting to those who are unfamiliar with what educational blogging can offer (I know I will be showing it!). The current video is great but is almost a “teaser” for the main event. I would love to see something a bit longer that could give more detail on the types of processes that students work through when they start to become proficient bloggers. Also a bit more on how teachers can make use of the technology. Maybe something about 15 to 20 mins, informative enough to spark interest without overwhelming or putting the audience to sleep.
Haven’t asked for much have I? 😉
PS – ever considered a trip to Western Australia? (the best wine, beaches and weather in the country)
