Sean Martinson ,

Thanks for the additions!

I'm glad to see there's been added content. These are the kinds of things I like to watch and as I start preparing and working with Video Podcasting on my own (Technology 4 Teachers), I can see many aspects of the TILT podcast that are useful to teachers. Danny provides walk-throughs with examples that teachers can relate to. When you finish a TILT podcast your wheels are spinning and you're thinking about ways to use what he's shown you.

Thanks Danny!
