Palm Breeze Cafe Celebrates 100 Episodes

Palm Breeze Cafe is cable television and Internet show produced by some great folks in the Palm Beach County (Florida) School District. Each week Palm Breeze Cafe introduces viewers to a variety of resources that teachers can use in their classrooms. This week the show celebrates its 100th episode. Congratulations to Lee, Lee, Kim, Jamey, Frank, and Thyme! I first learned about Palm Breeze Cafe a few years ago through Lee Kolbert. Lee has started a 100th episode VoiceThread that you can view and contribute to on her blog.

If you've never seen Palm Breeze Cafe, the video below will give you a good idea of what the show is all about.

Palm Breeze Cafe, a great web video show about educational technology, just released part six of its Website Smack Down series. Over the course of the six episodes they have reviewed twenty-four websites that teachers can use in their classrooms. They use a nice format of talking about how the websites can be used while showing you the basics of using the sites.

Palm Breeze Cafe Reviews Free Technology for Teachers

Palm Breeze Cafe is a web video show hosted by Lee Kolbert, Lee Keller, Kim Cavanaugh, and Jamey Akien. The show is a very high quality production. In each episode the hosts review and discuss educational technology tools and practices. You can find and subscribe to the show on numerous video hosting sites including YouTube, Blip, and HowCast. Recently, they were kind enough to tape an eight minute segment about this blog. I am completely flattered by the review. Thanks Lee, Lee, Kim, and Jamey.
The segment is embedded below in form. (If you're viewing this in RSS you will need to click through to view the video).

One thing to note, at the beginning they mention that I'm in New Jersey. While my mother is from New Jersey, I live in Maine.

Educational Podcasts to Listen to This Week

For a couple of months I've been plugging Tech Teacher Live and Wicked Decent Learning as great podcasts for teachers interested in technology integration. I continue to listen to both of those podcasts every week and recently I've added two new items to my list of must hear and see items each week.

Tech Talk 4 Teachers
is a podcast produced by Tom Grissom at Eastern Illinois University. Each week Tom discusses topics related to education with an emphasis on technology's role in education. In the most recent episode Tom discusses the issue of depth versus breadth when looking at web 2.0 tools. Tom is looking for listener feedback this week on the question of what web 2.0 tools teachers feel warrant further investigation. Check out Tech Talk 4 Teachers and share your thoughts with Tom.

My newest must watch item is actually a Youtube channel called Palm Breeze Cafe. Palm Breeze Cafe comes from the school district of Palm Beach County, Florida. Each episode Lee Keller and Kim Cavanaugh discuss technology as it relates to education. You can watch Palm Breeze Cafe on Youtube or on the Palm Breeze Cafe website. You may also want to visit Lee's blog, A Geeky Momma's Blog for more of Lee's thoughts about education and technology.

This week on Ron Kroetz's Tech Teacher Live podcast, Ron discusses a great $50,000 scholarship opportunity for middle school students. Check out Ron's website Tech Teacher Live for more information or listen through the widget installed on the right-hand side of Free Technology 4 Teachers.

Finally, tune in to Wicked Decent Learning to hear Dan and Jeff discuss student recognition, video editing tools, and the impact of increasing food prices on school districts.
