SITE 2008 Keynote

by | Tuesday, March 18, 2008

The SITE Keynote presentation by Matt Koehler and myself is finally ready to release to the world. I know converting 350 sildes, and synching them to the narration was a huge task – and Matt has already spent countless hours on this. He ended up with a 60 GB file (yeah that’s Gigabytes!) which then Ken Dirkin and Matt squeezed and compressed into this 48MB download. Do not try this over a dialup connection.

When is a picture of a sandwich more than a sandwich?

The answer is that when that picture has been taken by someone you know and it ends up on the NYTimes Freakonomics blog! Long story short, a picture of a sandwich taken by Leigh Wolf has been used by the cool people over at Freakonomics to illustrate a story. Check it...

Microblogging in the classroom

I have written quite a bit about how a technology can become an educational technology (see this, this, this and this). This is a non-trivial task that all educators face, and requires situational creativity in re-purposing / re-designing the existing tool to meet...

Being a tourist in Taipei

I woke up this morning, feeling maybe for the first time in this entire trip, tired and a little homesick. I ascribe the first to the rather hectic schedule I have had the past 10 days so, continually on the move, presentation after presentation, meeting after...

    Wow, thats one really amazing keynote, i still dont get why in German Universities such presentations are something really rare.

  12. Punya Mishra

    Thanks Sean. It was a lot of fun to create… though it does take time. I know Matt and I put in quite a bit of effort into this. Love your blog.

  13. Sean

    i am still amazed by this presentation.
    i suggested a format of this type to my principal at the beginning of school this year. we work really well together… and this format would almost perfectly fit our personalities.

    of course, we didn’t have the time to pull if off, so we didn’t try. i still aspire to the greatness seen here! seriously. very engaging for this genre. wow.

  14. Daniel

    I’m still baffled about how you guys manged to compress the 60gb. Thanks for posting the keynote – it was definitely the highlight of the conference. You and Matt are light years ahead.
