What a great opportunity to motivate educators to develop and create web 2.0 projects. It is very easy to talk about the technologies, but I feel in order to walk the talk; I should model the projects I have used. So, for every web 2.0 application, I created something personal to me. I am giving a presentation to my Golden Apple Scholar group on Wednesday, during our reflective time.
There are always three parts to a presentation I give:
- Keynote (PowerPoint, with movies and introductions) Posted on slideshare as well.
- Google Doc Presentation of web 2.0 examples
- Internet surfing of technologies such as plurk, twitter, and possible skype calls
I always try to leave at least ten minutes for questions. I am also experimenting with polleverywhere.com so they can use their cell phones for polling. I have never had the opportunity to use this since my students are in middle school and cell connection is extremely poor, so testing this out with my group.
Hopefully, I will motivate you to create and share with your PLN (Personal Learning Network) technologies you find interesting to use. Walk to the talk and share!
