Hello there!

I found your podcast on itunes, and enjoyed so many of your points. Good luck getting those mp3 players. if you have macs, it is SO easy to make podcasts using garage band - the kids love to make them.

I have an observation about smartboards. We have tons of smartboards in our school (23 of them, with another 14 coming soon). I understand it might not work for your particular discipline, but the interesting thing is what happens when you get technology close to your teachers.

We found that having a projector / screen in the room, ready to go, makes using technology so easy, that even our low-tech teachers are using the smartboards. It's a real lesson in "if you make technology easy to use, and immediately accessible, teachers will use it!". We are using the 600i series, so a teacher can use it to write notes, then easily save the notes, and upload them to a course management system.

I enjoy your podcast, thank you very much.
