Over the past week, we’ve discovered a number of good items being put together by some of our readers.
The first is a new popular podcast called “Robots” (iTunes — RSS Feed — Web Site). Assembled by a group of grad students associated with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), each episode focuses on a specific topic (e.g., robot soccer) and features interviews with high profile guests in robotics and artificial intelligence. Also, each episode highlights news and views from people building and programming robots inside and outside universities.
Next, you may want to swing over to Nigel Beale’s site and listen to his radio program/podcast called The Biblio File. The site houses about 100 audio interviews with various authors. Perfect for the bibliophile.
Lastly, two quick mentions: Tom Hanson, over at the “Open Education” blog, recommends Zaid Alsagoff’s free e‑book called “69 Learning Adventures in 6 Galaxies,” which essentially offers a “resource for teachers seeking to be technologically relevant.” And then, along similar lines, you can find at SmartTeaching.org a helpful post called “100 Awesome Classroom Videos to Learn New Teaching Techniques.”
