As most people involved in ETAS will know, Cindy Hauert has made an extremely generous contribution to improving the lives of a group of children in Zimbabwe. ETAS has supported the project as well, taking over a sponsorship for 2007.

But what happens to the project when the sponsorship is over? It is cetainly still a necesity for the many children living in poverty and should not be neglected.

For this reason the Matopo Primary School blog has been set up and includes advertising. Each time the blog is opened, money will be generated that will then go to this worthwhile project.

Please have a look, leave a comment, provide your support.

and… Thank you ETAS !

Webcastathon and other things to listen to

Posted by Illya on 20 September 2007

This weekend there will be a webcastathon. What is a webcastathon? First, what is a webcast. Here is wwhat Wikipedia has to say:

Webcast

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

Jump to: navigation, search

A webcast is a live media file distributed over the Internet using streaming media technology. Essentially, webcasting is broadcasting over the Internet.

Now this coming Friday there will be a weekend long webcasting session over at Worldbridges. There are different groups that regularly do webcasts, many related to education, and all copied in the form of a podcast for you to download and listen to at your leisure.

This coming Friday at 19gmt (9pm Swiss time) I’ll be moderating a show with a few others on the topic of food. We’re out to have a good time (something that is often neglected) and I garauntee that there will be a great variety of foods. Moderators are from Switzerland (me- well, actually from the US), Brasil, southern USA and Argentina, and possibly Portugal.  Most are, like myself, not living ‘at home’.

You can stop in at the following site:  http://www.webcastacademy.net/listen 

Click on the program that’s running, choosing the best application for listening on your computer.  Then you can click on the chatroom with the name you want seen there- I think we’ll be in webcast academy, and join in the chat!

I hope at least some of you can join us!

Oh, about those podcasts, take a look at edtechtalk.com (also in the links under podcasts)
