[...] After leaving the preconference event, I spent some time in the Discovery booth and then met up with David Warlick, Will Richardson and Rob, one of Will’s co-workers.  We grabbed a quick bite to eat and then rushed off to make sure we could get seats to Apple’s Podcast Palooza.  We all remembered what it was like at NECC, when the line continued on for as far as the eye could see, so we wanted to get there early.  Turned out we didn’t need to.  There was great energy in the room, and there were definitely plenty of people there, but they didn’t come close to filling the room.  Will kept leaning in to me and saying, "Well, you were around when podcasting began and looks like you’re here to see the beginning of the end!"  Sorry Will, but I don’t think podcasting is going anywhere anytime soon!  As he pointed out on weblogg-ed, "There must be at least 134 sessions on podcasting…"  Tim Wilson was the one doing the presenting and he had a smooth informative session.  Obviously, like all ADE’s, he used Keynote instead of PowerPoint.  Aesthetically, gotta admit that Keynote makes things look pretty!  But he definitely followed my own style of presenting.  Let the stuff on the screen serve as background and keep the audience attention on you.  If there’s something important to say, say it.  But don’t force people to split their attention.  He included some great suggestions for incorporating podcasts in the school environment as well.  Tim wrote about the session here, and also provides links to listen to the entire presentaiton, which was recorded of course.  Warlick did quite a few informal interviews before the presentation and came to an interesting conclusion.  While there were fewer people attending the session than we would have expected, one the whole they were a very educated group when it came to podcasting.  The majority of the people he spoke to not only knew what a podcast was and had listened to a few, many had created their own already.That’s always encouraging.  It’s not that I think everybody must be podcasting, but the more people taking chances and experimenting with new technologies and evaluating their educational use, the better.
