Announcing “Meandering Out Loud”

I don’t know why I hadn’t seen this before, but now that I have seen it I’m stealing the idea.  My good friend Clif Mims apparently has been doing this series entitled “Thinking Out Loud” for five or six or seven months now.  He introduced the session as a way to describe how teachers can use technology in a verbal, rather than text-based format – which he further described as not well thought out ideas, but a chance to play with thoughts and ideas (and you can listen to at Announcing “Thinking Out Loud”).  He primarily uses web-based technology entitled AudioBoo, as a way to post short three to four minutes audio recordings of his thoughts on a variety of topics (although he does have some video ones too).

As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to replicate it…  So, below I want to introduce you to “Meandering Out Loud” – which I will try to post around the beginning of each month.

Click on the image to begin the “Meandering Out Loud” audio clip.

In previewing the recording prior to posting, apparently when I meandering I talk fairly fast…  :)  There’s also a clicking that seemed to happen, which I’m not sure what it was (but it caused some words to come out funny).  Anyway, it was fun experimenting with Audioboo and I look forward to more focused “Meandering Out Loud” installments.

    I hope you also find this to be a worthwhile exercise.

    All the best.
