There are important things going on in this week's episode of Down the Hall. The most important is that we need you to help us choose our theme song! We introduce Fiona Czeschel to the show (another great co-worker of mine, I'm so lucky to be blessed with so many wonderful people around me) and we've decided, as part of our spring cleaning, to update the theme song.
Each host has chosen a song that we'd like to use for our theme. But only one can win, so we want you to help us decide. Even if you don't listen to the episode (and c'mon, you know you want to) because you don't have time or something (Dawnie, this means you!), we'd still love it if you voted for our song. As I said on Facebook yesterday, I won't even hold it against you if you don't choose mine (not that we can tell who voted for what anyway).
Here's the link to the episode.
I suppose you probably want some educational content along with all this frivolity? Well, we've got it. I talked to Dr. Stuart Poyntz of Simon Fraser University, who's also teaching in the Recurring Questions in Technology summer institute that we're holding (ta da!) this Summer. He talks about the importance of media literacy with children, and how it's imperative that we teach our kids how to discern what's good and what's bad, to evaluate and discard media that isn't relevant to them. We also talk about children and technology.
I found it a fascinating discussion, and I know you will too.
