Demo for ATP at National

I'm here with participants in the OCDE Administrator Training Program at National University... asking these three familiar questions:
  1. What is a blog? A site where people post thoughts on any topic. A site for communicating with friends. A web-based log entry system - for anything. Tends to be topic based. Ability to comment. People can subscribe to it. 
  2. What is Web 2.0? Instead of one-way websites... sites are interactive. Create, edit, etc. Tools for publishing online (required by common core). 
  3. What might these technologies mean for you and your students? Students might experience (and understand) other points of view... students might participate online (but not in the classroom)... learning can be extended outside the classroom... global experience available... collaboration online - communities... access to different ways of expressing ideas (multi-media)... social construction of knowledge... kids will work harder for peer review...
