Demo for RBUSD Summit

I'm back in the RBUSD asking these three familiar questions - with a curve ball!

1. What is a blog?

A web log. We can share our own ideas and other people can comment on them. It's an interactive super quick way to share ideas.

2. How might this be important to you and your students?

They can get quick feedback... and don't need to wait for an answer from a certain person. They can answer each other's questions.

3. Where are you going to display your #gettinggoing badge?

On our nametag... on our laptops... on our faces.

Demo for CA Summit

What is a blog?

Online journal
1 to 1 feedback...
An essay expressing an opinion publicly
Blogs can be damaging... throwing up on the internet
Immediate comments/feedback...
Can be informative, how to, etc... 

What is the read/write web (web 2.0)?

You can interact with what you see... and others who do also
Literacy becomes more important

What do these technologies mean for you and your students?

Could be instead of a newsletter...
A forum to practice writing for the public...
Need to learn to use it constructively not just socially
And to effect change...
Ettiquette becomes an issue...
Digital lab reports
Positive Digital Footprint
You have to begin teaching these issues early..
We're not the only expert in the room...

Creative... 

3. What do blogs and the read/write web mean in education?

Student voice...

And now I'm adding some media... as a demo of course.

Demo Post for ON Summit

I'm here with adventurous educators in Ontario... asking these three familiar questions:

  1. What is a blog? Online chat, journal, personal articles, forum for discussion, therapy, caption of someone's life, interactive, update, bias, a public record, more spontaneous, ownership, personal reflection... digital presence, becomes a history - a chronology.
  2. What is the web 2.0? Everyone is a consumer and producer, collaborative, different points of view, global, instantaneous...
  3. What do these technologies mean for you and your students? Their brand, freedom -artistically,politically, intellectually... gives them an audience... possibility for equity and equality... voice for students that might not typically share... challengend oportunities to learn: etiquette and ethics (digital citizenship).
This is a rich discussion to start the session. Here we go...
