Thanks to all who joined us on Thursday (November 30th) for Language Lab Unleashed #16a!
Phil Wolff, Editor-in-Chief of SkypeJournal, Steve Sloan of San Jose State University, Cal Frye Networking Guy from Oberlin College, Doug Worsham from the University of Wisconsin, and Ed Dente from Tufts University joined Barbara to discuss the recent banning of Skype at SJSU (a story which made the national news), current usage of Skype on college campuses in general and as part of a language classroom curriculum, and lots in between.

We continued the conversation on Sunday December 3rd (okay, yes we know, B started the show by saying it was the 2nd) and despite a few technical glitches (sorry!) we had return visits from Joe Dale, Steve Sloan, and Phil Wolff, as well as Deborah Cordier from the University of South Florida; Chris Fuller, an MFL teacher in Devon, England; Paul Harrington, an ICT coordinator at Cefn Forest Primary School in Caerphilly, South Wales; and Alex Savage, an ICT teacher at Notre Dame High School in Norwich, England. Wow! What an ecclectic and international group! thank you all for coming and participating. Access the downloadable file and chat log, or stream this episode using the built-in player:
