Episode #68 features a round robin resource sharing event conducted during the Orlando ATIA 2011 Conference known as the “A.T. Smackdown.” Educators like Dave Hohulin, Karen Janowski, Brian Wojcik, and a host of others shared different tools that they have found useful to help educate students. With this go round, I got to be there in person to record the live event!

Also, I’d like to thank Eliza Anderson, for contributing the bumper at the beginning of the episode.  You can check out the free newsletter/e-zine with information on how to subscrive and contribute over at http://atprogramnews.com

Special thanks to Dave Hohulin and Brian Dowd for sharing their notes of the event (which helped tremendously in putting the list below together).
