The Savvy Technologist Live!

7 Jul 2006

I had a great time on Thursday afternoon recording an episode of my podcast in front of a live audience.

My first guest was Sonny Portacio, geocacher and Director of Technology for the Escondido Union High School District. Sonny has been doing a ton of work with geocaching lately. He’s created a wiki site for collecting lesson ideas at edcaching.wikispaces.com and a weekly geocaching podcast at podcacher.com. We talked about geocaching and how it can be used in schools.

I also talked to Jeff Utecht of The Thinking Stick blog and Utecht Tips. Jeff has been teaching in Shanghai, China for the last year and we talked about the state of blogging in China and how he’s using blogging with his students there.

All in all I had a great time recording the podcast. Thanks to everyone who stopped by to watch and participate.

  1. Hey Tim,
    Just wanted to mention how much I enjoy your interviews. I had to drive up to Seattle on Sunday to pick up my oldest daughers furniture from her college apartment and listened on the way up. Really enjoyed the talks with Sonny and Jeff. Keep up the good work. See ya around…

    Oh, and Legoland is pretty cool. My kids enjoyed the cars too…

    Take care,
    Tim
