Practical Ed Tech Podcast - Episode #6 Featuring Dr. Scott McLeod

In the last episode of the Practical Ed Tech Podcast I mentioned that I had recently spoken with Dr. Scott McLeod about his new book, co-authored with Julie Graber, Harnessing Technology for Deeper Learning. I was going to wait a few more days before publishing the conversation as a podcast, but I couldn't wait. So here it is.

I've known Scott for ten years or more. He's one of the people in the educational technology space that I've always looked up to and trusted for good advice. Our conversation for the podcast ranged beyond just talking about his new book.

You might not be familiar with Scott's written work, but there's a good chance you've seen the video that he did with Karl Fisch, Did You Know; Shift Happens. I kicked off the conversation by asking him, "what's changed since Did You Know; Shift Happens was published twelve years ago?" Give the podcast a listen to hear his response.


The Practical Ed Tech Podcast can be heard on Anchor.fm, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple PodcastsRadio Public, Breaker, and Pocket Casts. And you can find the RSS feed for it here.

In 60 Seconds on the Web

In 60 Seconds on the Web is a neat infographic displaying approximations of how much new stuff appears on the web every sixty seconds. The question for educators is how does the ease of publishing to the web and the constantly increasing content impact how and what we teach? I think it's the same question that Scott McLeod and Karl Fisch raise through Did You Know?

Did You Know 4.0 (Shift Happens)

Dr. Scott McLeod sent out a Tweet last night announcing that the fourth version of Did You Know? (also referred to as Shift Happens) was going to be released today. Well I just watched it on Scott's blog and now you can watch it too. This version was done in the same spirit as the previous versions, but has less of an education slant and more of a business slant. To learn more about the development of Did You Know? and see the previous versions, visit the Shift Happens wiki.

When You Use Creative Commons Licensing...

Sometimes you get great things like this... remixed version of Shift Happens.


The official remix...


The remix available in 22 languages...


So many remixes that you could spend a couple hours watching them on YouTube.

How many educators and administrators have been influenced by the spirit of the Did You Know and the many, many remixes?

Thanks to Chris Brogan for the thought. Most educators probably don't know who he is because he's in the business/ marketing world, but he has some excellent thoughts to share about building connections and communities.
