Interview with Richard Byrne – Keynote Speaker at #BIT14


Michelle Cordy (@cordym) has been doing a series of online interviews with educators.  Starting on Tuesday evening, look to her efforts in putting a human face to the Bring IT, Together conference through the interviews.

I was honoured to be invited to share the microphone with her as she interviewed Richard Byrne.  (@rmbyrne)  Richard will address the group on Thursday morning in a keynote titled “The Power of Technology to Prepare Students for the Future” and then will offer a breakout session “Ten Common Challenges Facing Educators and Tools to Address Them”.  He promises this to be a practical edtech approach in the classroom.

Those who tried to watch live know that there were a couple of challenges – Richard was in one Google Hangout Room and Michelle and I in another wondering where he was!  We eventually solved the problem and were able to complete the interview, albeit a bit late.  If you missed it, or would like to enjoy it again, it’s presented below.
