Legislative School Technology Day

250pxdutchcongressToday sure was an exciting day for The Blurb and Our Opus as three student editors–Melvin the Chicken Hunter, The Hamster and Elvis—spent the better part of the past 8 hours showing off our podcast program to state legislators as a part of our state’s Legislative School Technology Day.  Like so many of our listeners, they were impressed!

Not wanting to let a good chance at generating content for our website go overlooked, we decided to bring our mics and see who we could interview.  Early on, we weren’t sure we’d find any willing candidates. 

We were wrong.

We ended up interviewing 12 legislators–both senators and representatives–about what technology was like when they were in school!

So over the next few days, expect to see a wide collection of interviews with a wide collection of legislators—both young and old—appearing on The Blurb and Our Opus.  You’re sure to learn lots of great information about a lot of great people….and you’ll learn about the power of podcasting! 

A mic is a beautiful thing in the hands of a 12-year old!

(PS…Thanks so much to the legislators who were so willing to give us your time today!  We’ll have your entry posted soon….Twelve blog entries is a ton to write!)
