In honor of back to school time of year, the Campus Tech Connection (CTC) crew hosted a two part series discussing online tools, resources, gadgets & more on the latest podcasts. Both professionals and students in higher education should take advantage of a few tech tools this coming academic year.

This initially started with a blog post from Steve Wheeler (@timebuckteeth), a great edtech educator in the UK who discussed Tools of My Trade in a blog post back in March. In thinking about a few techie things we want to try out this year, we thought the CTC show would be a great forum to discuss and share.
Both episodes were jam packed with resources, so to keep you (and us) on track we archived both podcasts and the many links to all the tech tools that you might want to engage with during this school year. From personal learning networks, to screencasting and new apps to try — these two podcasts have something for every educator.
Back to School Tech Tools, Part I Podcast & Resource List from August 2, 2010.
Back to School Tech Tools, Part II Podcast & Resource List form August 9, 2010.
