Coming of Age the Podcast – Addition Information

After reading and responding to Steve Lee’s comment, I thought I would add a bit more information in a regular post. Forgive me, I should have done this the first time.

Coming of Age the audio version is now listed on iTunes. I believe it made it into the index Thursday and I have succusfuly located it in two ways.

  1. Using the iTunes search tool (in the Podcast genre). I searched for “Coming of Age” (Tthe quotes here are for affect, I did not use them in the actual search).

  2. Using the iTunes browse tool (in the Podcast genre). Next went to education then to Education Technology.

I was NOT successful doing a top level search for “Coming of Age” however, I did learn there are a number of song on iTunes titled Coming of Age. I guess that tells us it is a good title for a book too.

Thanks for your time today.

Table of Contents update

Thanks to Shawn and Steve for their postings!

Draft Table Of Contents (Version 10)

Items marked *

are new to or updated

in the second edition

(Tbc) = To Be Confirmed

TF = Terry Freedman (Note: if anyone wishes to take over some of the stuff I've allocated to myself, don't be backwards in coming forward!)

Please ignore any formatting errors for now: life's too short.

Wanna get involved? Here are some ways you could help:

  • Tell me if the chapters are in the correct order, and allocated to the correct category.
  • Volunteer to write a chapter (I'll need a brief bio and a sample or two of your writing please)
  • Offer to proofread either a chapter, the whole book, or a particular aspect of the book eg are spellings consistent (as a Brit I need to keep tabs on the way certain other nationalities mangle the spelling conventions that served us well for aeons)
  • Provide me with material I can use for the case studies
  • Mention this project on your blog or in other places
  • Suggest ways in which it could be improved
  • Visit the websites of the authors mentioned: as soon as I have some more time I'll publish them, but in the meantime I suggest you look at the current edition of "Coming of Age" to find out more about the original contributors, and then "google" the rest. Not all of them have websites, but a lot of them do.
  • Send me, or the other contributors if you know them, a few words of encouragement, or let me know when you mention this on your blog, as that gives us all a fillip!
Thanks. And now, enjoy!
